    I started this 8+ years ago and just could not finish it, well I needed something to practice quilting on my new machine so I finally got the top finished and I really like it. some of the fabric is from the 1980's when I started quilting real quilts.

    colors are richer than they appear

    What a pretty quilt!! Love the color combination. Doesn't it feel great just to finish one quilt (speaking from experience ;) .

    Oh, my goodness - you are going to machine quilt that lovely quilt on your home machine? I just finished a twin size and it scared the beegeebee's out of me to do it. How impressive that you are going to do such a large quilt. I want to see it when it is quilted. How exciting!

    I think shortly after we added the bedroom on so that was '01 and I just really didn't like the quilt until now with the borders, LOL I told KT that I posted the ugly quilt and now it looks good. She said she didn't want to call it ugly but...............
