It’s finished and entered into QuiltCon. This was an epic quilting journey over the last week. Total hours of quilting = ~77 hours.
I had a couple of moments there, where I did not think I would make it, or I wasn’t sure I made the right quilting choice for the outer border. I am so thankful for a couple of friends was texting with, and the IG community, without the support this definitely would not have been finished on time.
This is now my favorite quilt I have made, and over the next couple of days I want to share with you a couple of posts. One on the design choices I made and why and the other on the matching binding.
