Using this Jan Patek Girl Gang pattern, circa 2005, I began a quilt named "It's a Wonderful Life."
I adapted it to suit my own requirements, as you can see by comparing the pattern and my final result.  The applique was completed in September of 2007.   Right then a number of life events interrupted my momentum, and the top was folded and stored.  In the meantime, other priorities jumped ahead, and this project just never got going again.

Well, today I finally quilted it!!!  It has moved forward to the binding pile, so we're in the home stretch at last.

This week's progress with Flea Market Dash.  Not spending much time in the sewing room right now, too many holiday activities distracting me.  I did piece a large back yesterday, so maybe I'll get to some layering and pinning one of these days.
