Courthouse Steps Quilt Top - DONE!

Over the weekend, Hubby played in a golf tournament. So I had LOTS of time on my hands. 

I kept making Courthouse Steps blocks. And then made more. AND MORE! 


I found two major mistakes in blocks and had to remake those.  BOOM!  By lunchtime on Sunday I finished!


Hubby has declared this to be his favorite of all the quilts I've made - wow, I've made a lot of quilts, so that's high praise, indeed!


And it's a good thing he likes it since it will hang on the wall behind our bed!


Courthouse Steps is so much harder to make than first meets the eye. Each block's colors have to match up the the colors of blocks surrounding it. I did a good bit of talking out loud to myself whilst I made it. 

Hubby calls it a 'masterpiece'. I call it a 'monsterpiece'. 

The quilt measures 88"x88". 

I'm a bit sorry to see this one done. It was SO MUCH FUN to make!

I'll hire a friend to longarm quilt it. I already have the backing fabric. This baby should be hanging by Thanksgiving - I hope!

It was the perfect time to finish this quilt. Why? Because...I'm going to Houston this week! My friends and I are flying out of Atlanta Wednesday, arriving in time for Preview Night. CAN'T WAIT!!!!!

Continue to stay safe!
