Posh Quilt Finished


DSC_2734.jpg

Here is a little background on this quilt before the details. About three years ago I had my gallbladder taken out and  my mom came up to take me care of me. We decided to stop by a quilt store for my first outing of the surgery. I hadn't quilted since about 7 years, but I still had all my supplies and have been carting around my stash everytime I moved.

During our outing to the local quilt store I announce that I wanted to start quilting again when I saw this quilt hanging up in the store. It was it was Posh Fabric by Chez Moi for Moda and rectangles and different then all the other quilts I had seen before. The quilt pattern was also called Posh and at one point was a free pattern on the Moda website. There was a nice little kit sitting on the counter calling my name. I wanted I had to have it. So I picked it up and carried it around the store while my mom did her shopping.

I had every Vicodin induce (after all I had just had surgery) intention of starting quilting right there and then when I got home. However, I could barely make it out of the store and back to the car with out feeling like I was going to pass out from the pain. Luckily, my mom was with me and decided to get me the quilt kit. Some how I managed to get back in the car and the whole way home I held on the my little kit.

That is the last I remember of that kit. I am sure I put it away somewhere safe, as I was too busy at the time to get to it. That was until I decided to start quilting again. After all this was thee quilt that made me decide I wanted to quilt again. So I have been slowly work on this one, along with all the other things that distracted me.

I even pieced the back which I am super excited about. I really like this quilt. I think the lighting was a bit bright in the backyard. I am going to have to find just the right time to take pictures.
