challenge top done

I can't show the top, until after the reveal, but... I am very pleased to be at this stage. I did the complicated/time consuming parts yesterday before going in for a six hour work shift.
This morning I slept in and rose to pouring rain. Terrific! A stay inside jammie day perfect for sewing away. With a few interruptions of household chores and coffee drinking-I did the next time consuming part as I decided to go ahead and add a few wonky hearts to the design. For my first time making them I am happy with how they turned out. Then it was time to put all the parts together into the top.

We are supposed to go swimming (inside pool) and should be leaving soon. I had to widen the back I made as I ended up going wider than I first planned. I ran out of bobbin thread as I was doing that part, will wind more when we get back.

With luck I may get to the quilting after dinner tonight. I know how I am quilting it and it should go pretty fast. Once the quilting is done, I have one more tricky part to add.

I am so pleased this project has come together as I had envisioned it. Often what I create in my mind proves to not work out in reality. And, this has been so much fun to work on!

Ok- time to throw my suit on and get out the door...hope your weekend has been as fun as mine.

oh a hint? Wonky hearts in there somewhere? Can't wait to see what you created for Pam.

Happy that you are having fun sewing and being creative as I know that was not the case for awhile.
