WIP: Dad's Sawblades

I haven't been doing much sewing in the past week or so, but I thought I'd post what pics I have of my long-in-process flannel Sawblades quilt. This was begun in 2004, and was put away for several years with half the blocks squared up. I finally finished the top this summer:

Lots of firsts in this quilt--this is my fourth quilt, overall, and was my first time working with flannel, my first pieced borders, my first mitered corners. I don't think I did too badly with the miters:

I should get it back from the long-arm quilter sometime soon, and I'm looking forward to seeing the quilting and doing the binding. It's going to my father, who is a fabulous woodworker, as partial payment for the custom sewing cabinet he made for me.

...apparently my mom already has plans for this quilt. ;)


  1. Your quilt is beautiful. I can't wait to see it after it is quilted.

  2. Hope you'll link up this week, that quilt is great for a man! Sorry it took us a little long, but we're following now too :)
