cog & wheel top: finally finished!



Finally, I can say I finished my Cog & Wheel quilt top. It took me an awful long time--actually, an embarrassingly long time--but I enjoyed myself along the way. This quilt has some of my favourite fabrics in it (mermaids! circuses! Heather Ross roses!), which made it even more special to sew.

It's the first queen size quilt I've finished, and it's destined for my bed once quilted. I'm sending this one off to the lovely and talented Lindsey for quilting. Let's just hope that it doesn't take me as long to bind it as it did to sew the top ...

P.S. Taking pictures of queen size quilts is really hard!
