I Can't Believe It!

I never thought this day would come!

The pin tins are full and there are some empty spools of thread.

I finished quilting my quilt!!
I have been machine quilting (on my DSM) like a woman possessed for 6 days and I am so pleased that it is finished! It is 102" square now - started as 105".
Just the binding and label left.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!

Update - here is the free motion feather video

BE-YOU-TA-FULL!!!! What an awesome quilt this has become - the detailed quilting in it makes it a show stopper!!

I'm so in love with the border and have to give you a HIGH FIVE for sucha awesome job. I'd much rather have a quilt like yours than those "dear Jane's" that are so popular.

Love from Texas! ~bonnie
