I got the top done this morning and it wasn't nearly as tedious as I expected it to be. Simple Pleasures isn't an example of precision piecing, but it's a completed quilt top.

And the thing is HUGE.

I could have easily have made it a little or a lot smaller, but I didn't realize how big it was getting until I'd already picked out oodles of different prints and I wanted to use them all, and to use lots of pieces of each one...and the pattern told me to make it 70x86... Reading a set of measurements and then picturing what size quilt they'll be is not one of my talents.

I suppose we really do need a few bed sized quilts along with all of the throws.

It is a very beautiful quilttop.

When a quilt grows beyond the pattern, I refer to it as a "Topsy Quilt." That's a reference to the black girl, Topsy, in Gone with the Wind. When asked how old she was, she said, "I don't know. I just growed!" ROFL!
