The top is done...woohoo!


This has been my life for the last couple of days. Diamond in the Rough. The finished product, to me, was worth the work. Here's the quilt, mitered corners and 3-D inner liner and all. I ran out today to find the stripe for the border. I just love this color of blue and I've added an inner border to draw the color out more. Any accent color like that will make the chosen color pop out of the quilt.

I just wish it would dry up around here so I can take a decent picture of the whole quilt outside on my deck. I find laying it flat on the lower deck and shooting looking straight down from the top deck makes for a good picture of a queen size (which this is) or larger quilt.

Now onto the quilt machine tonight, so I can start quilting tomorrow. You know the quilt tells you how it wants to be quilted, let's talk...smile.

That quilt top looks just lovely. And if your MIL doesn't like it -- I'm sure you can find all sorts of people who would give it a good home!
