Throwback Tuesday: Lansing Leaves

Jumping on the bandwagon after everyone has abandoned it, I decided to show you an old post from my many years of blogging.  I chose a random year and a random month. I only wrote one post that month, so it was easy to choose the specific post, July 19, 2014.  In this post, I explained how I made a quilt top while living out of a hotel room for a month. You can read it here, Lansing Leaves Quilt.

Since that post, I added another round of leaves as a border.  I also sewed alternating flying geese for the borders. I wasn't sure if the border fabric matched the center very well and probably had some issue with the size of the rows. You can read the whole story by reading all the Lansing Leaves posts here.

While it is tempting to finish it - either as is, or with the alternating flying geese border, but for now, I am going to keep going with my current quilt, Colonial Cotton Bricks, and at least get the top finished.

Oh, the things we go through and survive and learn from! Yep. Abandoned ship. Does that make us the still floating rats hanging onto slivers?

I admire your tenacity!
Your posts are always fun and real, thanks. I don't finish quilts in a day either.
I find I'm happier with the results if I have time to think and maybe even redo

You used some lovely fall colors in that one. Hope you can get back and finish it off someday soon.
