Quilt in a Can completed

Well here it is, the quilt in a can, all done. It is very busy, but I like it. This is the second quilt I made with my broken arms. When I was working on broken wings and reached the point where my hands would not allow me to do anymore until more healing occurred, I started this top. This will make a great kick around quilt. A quilt that you really don't care if it is on the ground, on the floor in the car, or on the beach. It will also work really good as a campfire quilt. A quilt you can use around the campfire and not care if a spark lands on it. It will be fun to have. Once again I will keep this quilt just because of the period of time in which it was made.
And as promised here is the back. It actually turned out pretty neat for a slap together back. There are some spots on the 80's looking sheeting but who cares. As I stated above, this is just a kick around quilt.
Well I am off to work on the Holiday Quilt. Enjoy the day. Root for USC and the Rockies. They are the underdogs of the World Series and they deserve the win. Just for you Red Sox fans who might read this blog. I just heard the Red Sox are the Yankee's of this series. They have a payroll well double of the Rockies. Just a thought, maybe you should check into the payroll of your team before you start trashing the Yankee's for their payroll.
FIGHT ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Dot

Boo-Hoo USC lost. They are having so many problems this year. Now I will watch the Rockies.

Congratulations on a great finish Dot! You get more accomplished than I do. That is a lot of piecing on that pretty quilt.

I absolutely LOVE this quilt. You are one amazing woman, Miss Dot. If you can do all that you can do with two broken must be an unbelievable force to be reckoned with when your wings are both flying high!

of course I love this quilt- it is a huge version of several I did last January through March time period..and you are right, a wonderful kick around quilt indeed!
mine went to charity. being an Oregonian, I have to admit I was glad the Ducks won-it looked like a close game though I only noticed each time I happened to walk through the living room :-)

I don't think this quilt deserves to be kicked around. I LOVE it! You just package it up and send it to me!
