Happy to report that I did finally finish the Great Green Granny quilt! We’ve had some unexpected travels in the last week and a half. Turns out it is reasonably easy to work on tying a biggish quilt in a tiny car. However, it is not easy for me to keep up with Internetting as much as I’d like while on the road. 

I mostly went with thin, blue ties. I had hoped to use red for a vintage/clashy look. My husband convinced me it would be overwhelming, and I’m glad he did. I think it would have been a bit much. But also, the red yarn is a medium weight and much harder to thread through the needle and punch through the fabric. I love my stripe and a half though. 

Have you tied a quilt? What do you like to use? I’d love any tips!

The quilt is a hit with people and pets alike. These pics are unposed and taken within 10 minutes of pulling the quilt out of the dryer.
