Finally Finished!

This quilt was hand pieced in 1985 as a block of the month and was my second quilting/piecing project.  (The first one was four blocks from a beginners class...which never was finished.)  My mom started quilting it for me but she passed away in 1987.  I finally pulled the quilt back out and had it quilted.  Dan did a fabulous job - every block has a different quilting pattern and the borders are gorgeous!



I finished binding just in time to post this month.  It's been cold here and every time I sat down after to work with my quilt to bind, I wound up taking a nap!  It's so warm and cozy!!!

The quilt is just beautiful. I can so identify with the nap-thing -- let me get comfy and warm and I'm out like a light!

That is amazing. So pleased it is now finished as it is much too nice to be hiding away as a UFO.

Beautiful! You did an amazing job hand piecing. It looks like alot of work. I'm sure you are thrilled to have it finished. Nothing like a snuggly quilt to nap with (even better now that it is finished lol)
