Top returned home :)

I’d finished the top some months ago but I hadn’t known what to do with it. I had not wanted to ruin the top with my dilettantish (I didn’t know this word exists in English! That’s pretty cool.) free motion quilting. When I went to the „Patchworktage“ fair in Dinkelsbühl, Germany last year (that's the annual(?) meeting of the German patchwork guild), I visited Nana’s stand. I was very impressed by her skills and sent her my top. Look what she did with it! Isn’t it gorgeous? I really love it. All I have to do is to tie off the yarn and do the binding.
