I will admit that I struggled hard with this quilt. The colors were not colors I would have chosen and I didn't really like the look of them. Plus, I was nervous about all of the half square triangles required. So I put off starting for a long time. But once I got started, it really didn't take long to piece it together. But I panicked about how to quilt it. Took me a few months to get started on the pebbling. And that did not go quickly once started LOL.
I had never done pebbling and I was amazed at how much thread it ate and how much time it took. I cleaned out my local shop's thread 3 times in the course of pebbling the blue. By this time it was November and I decided that it would be finished by Christmas no matter what. During all of my pebbling I was thinking of how to quilt the yellow and decided to do a flower. I found a template at the LQQ and modified it slightly ti fit the space I had. That part did go quickly!
I honestly think the back is my favorite part. I used blue thread for the pebbling, yellow thread for the flowers and I love that you can clearly see them on the back. I'm not sure of the final dimensions as I totally forgot to measure it LOL. They have been using it as a lap quilt for 4 months now and it has been washed multiple times. I just love the texture and dimension that the pebbling adds. It almost makes me want to tackle some more pebbling. Almost.
