Project of Doom Quilt is done!

Project of Doom Quilt is done! Finally, I can’t tell everyone how happy I am. She finished off so beautiful.

The Project of Doom quilt was part of a Quilt Along, that is still ongoing. New members join every day, some of the new member have never paper pieced before. So it does not matter how experienced you are, you CAN make this quilt.

I will be honest of you, this was my very first paper pieced quilt, ever.

All these patterns and more can be found here. They are all free.

Here is she is, Petunia in all her glory.

There is a couple more works in progress, that I am currently busy with. That is excluding all the ufo projects. (Un finished objects)

Here is the dark arts Project of Doom quilt top. Still has to be quilted.
