    Red face Avatar quilt is finally finished!

    I finally finished my avatar quilt . I absolutely loved doing the appliqué on the top, but sort of lost my motivation after that. The colour on my avatar is truer.
    Anyway, I finally quilted it at my LQS and sewed the binding on this week - hooray! Don't look too closely at the quilting - it's only the third time I've used a long arm!
    Thanks for looking.

    That's gorgeous! Thank goodness you finished it...would be a shame to leave something so pretty in the UFO stage.

    It's beautiful! Love the patchwork diamonds with the applique. Wish we could see the quilting up close, but it looks fine from here!

    It is so beautiful. Great job.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Wow!!! That is gorgeous! I love the look of applique, but it's not my favorite thing to do. I am amazed at how talented some people are, you included.
