    This is the quilt I have made as a Christmas present, I finally finished the binding. I quilted it at my sisters in Joplin Missouri. Now all I have to do is make a bag for it to rest in until it is opened.

    The back is a very soft printed flannel, it is quilted with a lace pattern.

    Ok I got them to stick this time. I have been trying to get these pictures on here for an hour, even if they are not in the order I thought they would be I am just happy to get they posted. Computer stuff can be very frustrating.

    Beautiful Christmas present, should be well loved :D Quilting is wonderful too, is it done on a long arm? Great job and love the waterfall picture, looks like if you touched it you would get wet.

    Thank you, I just love the way that picture turned out too. It was a surprise as I figured it would be spoiled by the movement of the water. I am pleased with the quilt also.

    Sewbusy-I love your quilt. What a great Christmas present!! Your quilting is awesome!!!

    The waterfall photo is gorgeous. It is really cold here today, so when I looked at it I could just feel how cold the water is!!!
