Default It"s done!!!!!!

I love the 1930's repro prints and I love to hand quilt so I made this bedspread for our queen size pillow top bed. It is 115 inches X 124 inches. I hand quilted it. I call it 'Springtime Fantasy or What was I thinking!?!' Never again will I hand quilt one this big. It took me a total of 4 years to hand quilt. I admit I didn't work on it everyday and some days, I just wasn't interested to work on it after work, but I stuck to it and it is finally done!!!! I can see by the pictures that I need to make a new runner for the top of my cedar chest to match.
