    Harvest Home Finished just in time!

    This quilt is for my oldest son. It was a bom from going batty quilt store here in town. It is called Harvest Home by Andover fabrics. I have been working on it for some time. I finally gave it to my long arm quilter last summer and told her there was no hurry. Well, I told her I was giving it as a christmas gift, so I got it back last sunday. LOL! No worry though, I got the binding on it today and now it just needs to be brushed and pressed and wrapped to send it off to him. I eventually will make shams to match with the extra fabric I bought.

    Here it is, I hope you all like it too. I am sorry I had trouble taking a picture of it because of the size.

    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.

    Oh, the backing is the same fabric as the background fabric to the baskets. Kind of berries and leaves on the dark navy blue. And I have to mention that some of the fabrics have sayings like Home, Family, Love, Stability and such sayings. It was a home warming gift for thier cedar home two years ago. LOL... So I thought the bright fabrics woud look great with those rustic walls.

    This is so very pretty and I love how all the different fabrics play so well together! Nice job!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Well, all the good words like "wow", "awesome", and "gorgeous" were taken. I guess all there is to say is "Great Job"!!!
