It is DONE!

Well a few years ago I went to Landcaster, PA.  My friend Jule helped
me pick out a wall quilt to make.  You can read about my progress HERE and HERE.  In the beginning I was really excited and had it pieced together in a few weeks.  Then the hand quilting began and I got a bit bored with it and put it aside.  I would work on it on and off for the next two years. 
This week I finally finished it. It is not perfect like I would have liked it to be, but it is finished. It 6 inches smaller than it was suppose to be. How did that happen???? My stitches are uneven and I had left it alone for so long I used two different thread colors to quilt it, dumb…. I don’t think it is suppose to have all those bubbles. Maybe I will try to iron it.

I love the colors. They are bright and remind me of all the autumn colors. Maybe I will make a winter one next.

I met a lady from a local quilters guild at Border’s the other day. They meet once a month just down the road from my house. So I may go check it out next month. I will keep you posted.
