    Finally this one is off to the long arm quilter's...

    I loved working on this quilt for my son and his wife. I have had it finished for some time now, but it was way too big for me to finish on my quilt table. And to tell the truth, I wanted better quilting on it then my skills would provide. So off to the long armer's house it went today for some custom quilting.

    I am so excited to see it finished. This was a BOM quilt top from Going Batty quilt shop. I will never forget the first time I saw a prototype up on the wall in thier shop. It stopped me in my tracks! Then when I saw all the lovely homey words printed in the fabrics, that was it for me. I had to make it.

    I hope you like it too.

    I forgot to tell you, each basket is a different pattern. It was a challenge but, I think I got it right.

    This is a small picture of what the whole quilt looks like. I did turn the outside baskets to the outside edges to where it can be turned either way for the top.

    Simply beautiful. That lime green just makes the other colors "pop". You did a wonderful job on this.
