Last Block

I just finished the last Midget Block.  Last block for me that is, there are more blocks being released now, but mine will be done at 144 blocks.  Done.  After two and a half years of one block a week.  I procrastinated all afternoon, cleaning and organizing and generally stalling instead of finishing off the one last block.  It is done now, and all that remains is the final sashing, trimming and sewing together of blocks.  I am sitting here a little sad right now.  Kathy wrote today about taking the last few stitches of her happy quilt very slowly, enjoying each one, knowing that she was almost finished.  I had to smile, because I am feeling the same way about my own Tiny Tuesday blocks.  Not to fear, not all the blocks have posted yet, so there will still be blocks through the end of the year.  Then it will be time to think seriously about my next big adventure in quilting.  Rainbow Scrap Challenge Dear Jane is officially in the works.

Absolutely gorgeous blocks. It's always a bit sad when something fun comes to an end. At least you've already got your sights set on something new.

It's funny how we get sad when a project is nearing completion! That was a big project but you still have a bit to do!

The are all stitched, but not forgotten, they still need to have more lovingly stitches put into the to sew them together, and then you get to enjoy the warmth they provide when you get to cuddle under it, stitching your rainbow Dear Jane! Congrats on getting to the end of one, and the beginning of another.

Well done for sticking at it for so long. I've really enjoyed seeing all your blocks, though I found them very fiddly. It will be good to see the finished quilt.

All your tiny blocks together look awesome! Wow. So much work! A treasure.
I'm thrilled to hear that you are hosting RSC 2013. This past year has been so much fun. Learning about colors. Visiting blog links to see what other have made each Saturday, watching you make your midget blocks ... all has all been so much fun. Thank you Angela.
