Something to Marvel about….

Marvel

I managed to finish the Little Professor’s quilt in time for Christmas!

At one point, around 3 days before Christmas, I wasn’t so sure I was going to complete it.  I knew I had to.  I had made a promise to my little man to have it finished by Christmas, but I was beginning to think keeping that promise would involve sewing all night right through Christmas Eve.

Thankfully, it never came to that.  There was only one night that I sewed through the night to early morning but it wasn’t Christmas Eve.

Phew!

In the end it was worth all the hours I put into making the quilt.  Everything from choosing the fabrics, creating the design of the quilt, to the endless hours of free motion quilting – something I had never done before which turned out to be a lot more time consuming than I could have imagined.  Fun, but time consuming!

In the end it was all worth it to see the look on the Professor’s face when he opened it Christmas morning.

Since then he hasn’t spent a night without it.  He likes to wrap himself in it when he’s reading or playing his DS.

As I was finishing this quilt I decided two things:

1.  I love quilting!  I can’t wait to get started on my next one.

2. It’ll be while before I sew another huge quilt.  I’m sticking to lap quilts from now on!

We'd love to hear your thoughts!
