A “Legendary” Christmas Gift and “Quilt Photo-bombing”

I realized I had not shared a follow up to the August 2021 post Creating a back for a “Legendary” quilt. I received the quilt back from the long arm quilter just before Christmas and shared the finished quilt on my @tierneycreates Instagram, but not on my blog where I had talked about it in several posts over the years.

I was able to get the binding on right before Christmas and I gave it to my partner John for Christmas. Below are photos of the quilted quilt including where John keeps it on the sofa in the basement where his “man cave” is:

I was trying to take pictures of the back of the quilt and a miniature schnauzer slowly snuck into the photo (photo-bombing)!

Mike: Hey what you doing?
Mike: Don’t mind if I sneak right on to the quilt while you try and photograph it!
Mike: Hi, I am cuter than this thing you are photographing!
Mike: Pay attention to me now!

This was taken before he got his haircut at the beginning of January. He got a bit furry through the holidays!

Oh the the extra tree block you see on the back of the quilt is by my friend Kathy, who gave me the scraps to make the quilt (plus scraps she got from our friend Dana). It was an extra she had when she made her quilt. That block reminds me/connects me to the love and generosity I constantly get from my long time quilting sisters!


Postscript

Thanks for all your well wishes on my January 5th post Things to Do When You Have a Bad “Cold”

I am feeling SO MUCH BETTER! Unfortunately now John has my “cold” but it seems to be milder for him. 

I’ve been making quite a bit of progress on the quilt I showed you I started while self-isolating due to me “cold”. I should be able to share on my next post what it is looking like on the “design wall”.
