It's Finished - It's Finished

My SKOW is finally finished.  I just finished stitching the binding on last night.  This is the first quilt I quilted on my longarm and I love it so much!

Thanks to Chooky and everyone else for their support to get this done!

Can't wait for the next Stitch-A-Long!


Close ups of the quilting!
