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)
