Finally Finished!

I didn't think I would ever get this big quilt done. I absolutely love it so it was definately worth it. I spent all afternoon sewing the binding down so I could start the week quilting a quilt for one of my PIF gals. I got it loaded and ready to start on when I get home from work tomorrow. It is going to be fun to do!


The colors look washed out in this picture, it is so bright outside, so I took a close up one to see how bright they are.


I love the fabrics and they go perfect in my house. This is a keeper and I will enjoy it for years to come.
