I finished the quilting on my taking-forever paintbox on Thursday;
the binding is going to have to wait until it gets cooler.
much cooler!

simple diagonal straight-line quilting with a curlicue border

I added a word, because I just have to...

the back does have some puckers,
but not nearly as many as this picture would have you believe.

I'm thinking this may be my Gramma's Christmas present;
she used to paint, so the 'paintbox' is appropriate.
She loves bright colors,
and she gets awful chilly in the winter.
I think she'd like snuggling under this and watching her tele.
And she loves me enough
that she won't mind my puckers and mistakes.
I think this one's Gramma's.
