    ...two years later

    Well I've posted this one before but it was in pieces.
    I finished it just before Valentine's day this week, and am posting the finished product! Machine pieced and hand quilted.
    I went back to see when I downloaded the pattern and in was January 14, 2011!

    Some of you may remember I sewed on borders and then took them off, and that I also ran out of fabric but found it again out of state. Boy was I lucky! It pays to shop often...I finally went with my gut on the colors for the borders and am glad I did not listen to folks who told me it was too monochromatic. I really like the binding fabric-so bright and cheery.

    The backer is plain muslin and was a really nice, soft piece I found at Hancocks. On Sale, no less.

    It is beautiful and I like monochromatic quilts as well as colorful ones. I also like the pop of the bright red binding.

    It often takes me years to complete a project as well, especially if I hand quilt it. Is there any way we can entice you to snap a few close ups of the different quilting motifs you used? I would love to get a better look.

    Actually I have some close-ups before it was totally finished.

    It looks great!
    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.
