The Tangled Yoke wasn't all I finished the third week in February.

I finished the top of this quilt two years ago, basted it promptly, and attempted to hand-quilt it. Hand quilting is not my thing, so I tied it. Wow -- on a quilt this size, the ties take a long, long time to finish. I used leftover sock yarn for the them and it was a perfect match. I guess I have a definite palette preference, especially when it comes to greens. I think there are at least 4 more pairs of socks waiting to be knit that are a very similar shade of green in my stash!

Then off to get the binding fabric -- I opted for a dark calico. This was my first time making my own bias tape from fabric and I must say, I really liked the process. The print adds just a touch of color that is great.
Could I have finished on a better date? (Well, maybe if I was into quilting in 2002). I decided I was going to put 2/20 even if it wasn't the real date. Turns out it was the real date I sewed the patch on.

Pattern from: 101 Fabulous Rotary Cut Quilts

Paths and Stiles patch, approximately 80" x 86"

Started November, 2005

Completed February 20, 2008.
