Sometimes you just gotta take a break. You did a wonderful job on the piecing and the quilting. The quilt is georgious!

This is a stunner and your quilting is wonderful. What a lovely treasure for your daughter. Can't you just imagine the joy in her face when this is opened on Christmas morning! Great job. Thank you for sharing.

I got it on the quilting frame probably 5 months ago? (not sure). My machine was working so horribly that I gave up after spending more time trying to get it stitching well than I was actually quilting.

Yesterday I just walked into the room and started quilting. No warming it up, no testing, nothing. Of course it worked just fine and I finished the quilting this morning. I have the binding about ready to sew on so it will be almost a year in the making. It's for my daughter and maybe THIS Christmas she'll get it.
