November but with the move and all, I have only just gotten it finished.
Actually, I'm making an excuse. I basted/pinned this quilt before we had even packed. I could have finished it weeks ago if I had wanted. Truthfully, I've simply been terrified.
You see, I love the colors and design of this quilt so much, I've been afraid to start quilting it for fear I would ruin it. I thought such a special quilt top required mind blowing free motion work. Work that is far above my skill level. So, I just kept stalling. Finally, Kade asked me when I was going to get to it and I admitted to him I was afraid. He gave me some good advice and told me I was over-thinking it. He told me to just do what I know and it would look wonderful.

The theme was board games and anyone who really knows me knows that theme is right up my alley.Some of the shops did more than others. Here are my favorites:
