Quilt Top Finished

I have finished my quilt top and I love it.  Now for quilting.  I am going to quilt it myself, but not sure exactly how to quilt it yet.  I still have to pick backing too.



It is great to see all of the blocks and quilt tops coming together and everyone's progress.  The support of the group has been amazing!  Can't wait to start Tis the Season.  Thanks Chookyblue.  It is -25 here in Ontario, Canada and -35 with the windchill.  Good time to stay in and do some quilting!

Well done, its beautiful. Its hard to decide what to do with the quilting, I'm nearly finished mine.... I started out to do something simple but it seems to be growing into a marathon, maybe because I dont' like this part at all.

Good luck

Helen

It looks great! Well done! I'm up to quilting also but I'm not sure what I'll do. I'd like to be game enough to be a bit adventurous if I can.
Is that temperature celsius or fahrenheit?? Whatever it is, it sounds COLD!!!!
