It's finished!!!!!!!!!!!!

At last! The quilt that took 16 years. It is finished! I just finished hemming down the binding. It was the first large quilt I started when I was first quilting in 1993. The pattern is called Crown of Thorns or Wedding Ring.

It was machine pieced and hand quilted. Each white square has a design in it, the pieced squares have the quilting in the white parts. The finished quilt is about 80 x 80 inches. The blue print is brighter than it shows in these pictures. The backing is white muslin.

Here is a close up of the quilting design (sorry about the shadow)
Here is the whole quilt!


It's DONE!! ::::Doing a happy dance:::::

A couple of more quilts

This is a quilt I made a couple of years ago. First is a close up of some of the fabric.

Here is the complete quilt with a matching pillow. The back of the pilllow has the same large floral as the border of the quilt. The quilt is about 48x36 - a nice size for a throw.

This one I posted about a few days ago -- I purchased the top in pieces and have sewn it together. The finished size is 39 x 48 inches. I did free motion quilting using my Viking Mega Quilter machine.

I pieced the backing with this large floral I had in my stash and some unbleached muslin. The binding is done in a solid dark blue.
