    I finally finished this. Please ignore the bed skirt! I also included a matching pair of pillow shams and pillow cases.

    This is for my best friend's wedding later this year. She picked out the Luna Notte fabric line (Moda).

    I've never made a braid before, it wasn't until I finished it that I realized the braids don't line up - but she still loves it and I'm still proud of it!

    And I had to show off the back of the quilt. I quilted this on the Bernina with the BSR and NO frame. It took a ton of patience and muscle!

    Beautiful! I love braids. The quilting looks great, I can only imagine the fun you had wrestling that through the machine. I did a double not long ago and it was tough, with far less quilting lines.

    It's beautiful & you should be proud! Getting that done on the 440 must have been a challenge. I am trying to figure out machine quilting but getting everything perfectly smooth is my challenge. How do you manage it? I have the 440 also.

    Beautiful quilt. I have a similar washbowl stand. The one you have is beautiful. I bought mine at a garage sale for $35 about 25 years ago. :)

    Great job and look how nice and 'fluffy' it is! Comfy cozy is all I can think of.
