Done!


Finally! And well worth the wait.  Machine quilting is awesome but there is nothing quite like a hand quilted quilt coming out of the dryer. It's so soft and puckered and pretty. I am in love with this quilt.  My BQFF and I started this quilt together.  It was featured in a McCalls Quilting Magazine dated April 2005. She made hers like the pattern, in pastels. I decided to do mine in jewel tones. I changed mine more by not adding the last border.  It took me a year and a half to handquilt this.  And it was well worth the wait.  I am going to hang this in my front entry.  It measures 64" x 70".

  1. How lovely - I love it!!I want to see it hanging in your entryway now!! I just embarked on the last stages of handquilting my 'Something for Nothing' baby quilt - that's been hanging around for too long while I work on commissioned quilts.
    I'm sure you'll get lots of positive comments on this one!!
