    Here it is. I have to tell you the costs, too. I think they are really low. Do you agree? Barn quilt (56" x 45")custom quilting $92, $14.88 for batting. Sunny Day quilt (68" x 48") was $55.49, and $18.06 for batting. Plus, they gave me all the extra batting, which will be used for ragged flannels.

    AND, she had gorgeous sale fabrics for $5 a yard, of which I bought a few; and one I bought was $3.75. Fat quarters were $1 each! I bought 4. (Gee, and I was getting so low on fabrics. No self-control. :roll: ) I must saying buying fabric makes me so darned HAPPY!! :D :D :D :D

    I trimmed them before I took the pictures.... And if they're blurry it's because my daughter said her arms were getting tired and I had to wait until she wasn't wiggling. :lol:

    Notice the shingles in the roof! The work around the bricks is awesome. And the silos have a curve to their quilting to make it lok real. See the tufts of grass??

    Ooops--I forgot there are replies--so I'll post the rest at the end of them...







    This is the top NOT quilted. It's impossible for you to see quilting from this distance, so I'll leave this one up.

    More of the barn quilt...
    She added shingles to the roof! See the tufts of grass! And there are curving lines in the silos. And straight lines in the barn sides, except for the brick--she went around those.

    :D :D :D :D

    Well, I still have to bind it AND add a hanging sleeve.... it seems it's never over... always o-n-e m-o-r-e step.

    But I am so happy to have this "baby" home. :D

    Fantastic! What an heirloom! Did you tell her how you wanted it quilted or give her free rein? Those prices seem very reasonable to me!

    Lucky--I let her tell me what she saw--and I agreed with everything she said. I figured she's the artist and knew 100% more than my 0%. We discussed it thoroughly when I left it. The excitement in her voice when she called to tell me it was done was so cute. She took a picture of it to keep and was just tickled to have something to be creative with. When I told her I wanted an overall pattern, I could tell she was disappointed. But, it's cheaper that way for me!! :wink:

    This woman is definitely a quilting artist! :!: :!: :!: :!:

    Excellent quilting. The quilt is tooo cute, but even cuter are the photos of horses in the barn doors. That is absolutely the icing on the cake. Great job!
