1. I started it for our queen bed, then decided I no longer wanted those colors, so then what was I gonna do with it. 2. I should never have bought it as the fabric was thin, but, I didn't realize that when I bought it.
3. I didn't really like it much anymore.
4. I just didn't wantta work on it!
Last year I decided it would go great in the guest room and that bed needed a new quilt. The paint in there is a light pinkish brown-perfect to go with this quilt. Last week I got it out and said that's it, I am gonna get this monkey off my back and so it is. And it's now on the guest bed. And guess what, I really do kinda like the thing now!!
As you know I don't do panto's very often, but I decided this quilt needed a panto called Halycon. And another good part is the back, I used up almost every square inch of the fabric on it, plus I had to grab another brown from my stash to make it big enough.

If you aren't familiar with longarm quilting and don't know what a panto is, here is a pic of it. It is a long piece of paper with the design drawn on. You follow it using a stylus or laser light that is attached to the longarm. As you travel across the quilt the design is then stitched on your quilt.
Linking with Freemotion by the River and SewFresh Quilts this week, links are on the side bar.
I Hope you all are getting some quilty time and are on your way to a great finishing year!!
