My Finished Quilt...

It is a good feeling to have my quilt all finished! A BIG weekend in my sewing room preparing to quilt, stippling and stitching the binding down has definately been worth it!!! I am so pleased how it turned out.



Backing fabric



Stippling done all around the blocks, done on my domestic machine (I call her my big Husky) I think she deserves a bit of a rest now!lol! After 5 hours of quilting!



It is hard to get a good pic of it all



In the last pic, are all 3 of the quilts I have made in the stitch a long over the last 3 years!

Thank you so much Chooky! It's because of you that I now have these 3 quilts!!!! And thanks to everyone in the group who left comments and posted, which encouraged me to keep going.

I will still be here on the side lines cheering you all on to the finish line!! Lol!
