    Boxes of Strings-done!

    I finished hand sewing the binding to the back last night. Took it outside today to get a picture even though it looks like rain. I don't think I will quilt another 90X90 on my sewing machine for a while. Here she is....Name:  image.jpeg

    Oh wow! That's beautiful!!! I love that pattern and your colorplay is so striking. Awesome job and I'm just shaking my head at your quilting a quilt that size on your regular machine. I just can't do that without making a horrible mess of things. Again.....Wow! I love it!

    Tartan, how did you quilt it--just outline or ?? Also, what kind of batting did you use? Mine is partially together and I am contemplating renting some time on a long arm to quilt it but all those seams make the prospect very daunting for a newby long armer. Any info would be much appreciated.

    Oops forgot to add that it looks fantastic!!

    Beautiful quilt Tartan. I quilt all my own quilts. A bit tight at first but get easier.

    Looks great! You can take a walk down memory lane as you take a look at all the scraps you used to create this gorgeous quilt. Enjoy keeping warm this Fall and Winter.
