Viva's Quilt

Viva started her quilt last May or even before that. I gave her some 5" batik squares and she arranged them on the design board. Then she started sewing them together. Then Bentley and Jake saw her working on a quilt, and asked to make their own quilts. For a while she sewed with them. Then she put her quilt away. For months. Finally this week she took it out and finished it! (I now have to quilt it and bind it for her.) Even though I was frustrated that she took so long to get back to this project, a lot of the quilters I know have dozens of half finished projects that have been in boxes for years. Maybe it's part of the quilting process? (Jake and Bentley finished their quilts quickly because they were eager to use their quilts.)
