Isn't she gorgeous? This is Madeline, all grown up. All 25 blocks of her. I am so pleased with this quilt top! It ranks right up there with my all time favorites. And it may be number one in terms of color combination. I think there will be a narrow light containment border, then an outside border of the large red floral print. She is about 60" square now, so the final version should be around 70" square. "That's all there is, there isn't any more". Those were the concluding lines of all the Madeline books, did you know that?
Since I was prisoner in my sewing room again today, I got all the blocks together, as shown above, and then started in on Elizabeth. I have finished 12 out of 24 Delectable Mountain blocks. Staying home is a good thing if one wants to get some sewing accomplished!
And, yes, that is my new gorgeous flooring underneath the blocks! It is turning out better than my wildest expectations. My husband is going to be blown away when he gets home Friday night. Worth every penny of the gazillion dollars it cost.
On the Sophie front, she is still managing to be a complete pain in the butt. See these little red rubber spacer thingys?
The workmen placed about a hundred of them along the edge of the new floor boards and the base boards. And Sophie went around and collected them all. I had a pile of red rubber spacers to hand off to the Flooring Boss when he showed up this morning. My dog needs a job.
She would happily become an apprentice to the flooring installers. Except for the banging and long stick things. She doesn't much like those things. That is a huge pail of floor glue she is wanting to get into in the picture below. It is going to be a long night.
