    It took 2 years to finish!!

    Here are pics of the quilt I have been working since Oct. 2009. I finished it about 3 weeks ago after 2 years. The lady who quilted it suggested the gold thread which really makes it pop! I am so excited. It is the first quilt I have made. In my avatar is one of the blocks!

    Very beautiful quilt. One like that takes me a lot of time also, but whew, now it is done. It feels so good getting to this point. You did a great job on it, and I like your color choices too. I love your background fabric.
    Each day is a blessing, so do something you love each day.

    You did a wonderful job. Great choice in colors and the gold thread really was a nice suggestion.
