Quilt Top Ready to be Quilted!

My quilt top and backing are sitting on The Happy Quilter cutting table!

I love the feeling when I am done with a project. 
 Especially one that has gone on for well over a year!!!

It is satisfying to be working on a long term project and finally get to the end,  happy with the results.

This is the Border that finished this  quilt top.

By the way….a long term project is NOT a Baby Dress you start, then  stick in your closet for two years!

Although it could be a Baby Dress that you work on  every few weeks, loving stitches sewn in slowly, until it's done in two years.  I need that continuity of stitching.

It's just rewarding.

This is the design that will be stitched all over my quilt, stitching together my top, back and the batting sandwiched in between.  It actually reflects some of the old fashioned flowers on the fabric in the quilt.  

I saw it done on Charlene's own quilt and it was very pretty.

Charlene will quilt it on her Long Arm Quilting machine.
Then I bind it.

THEN…I can give it to my Granddaughter.
Can't wait!

It is so satisfying to finish a project. Your quilt is so lovely and I'm sure your granddaughter will just adore it. I can certainly relate to your comment about the baby dress being put away for two years. That happens all too often, I'm afraid.
