WIP Wednesday: Brian's Quilt

Even Grady looks a little bored with this quilt, doesn't he? Maybe that's a sign that it's been sitting around too long. I began work on this simple star quilt sometime in 2004. I made about 10 blocks back in the period when I lived on the farm without tv service. Then earlier this year, I picked the project up again and pieced the entire top as a birthday gift for my husband. It's a generous lap quilt size, and after getting Brian's input on the backing fabric, I've been slowly hand quilting it with a combination of outline stitching and repeated shells. I'm getting closer and closer, and I hope to have it finished in time for his next birthday in April 2008! This is a crafting problem that I have-- it's hard to finish things.
