Quilt :: finished!


the back and front, originally uploaded by artstreamstudios.

Oh the good good feeling of finishing a project. This one took over two years. No three years now that I think about it ... which I don't want to do. It all started with a page of simple directions which seemed like even I could do, so I jumped in. Got a lot of help a long the way and owe much much to my dear Rainer for helping make the seams a little straighter and fixing my messes... but now it's done. It may travel to France next week. It's for daughter Grace and she loves it. Yippee for finished work! Click through to see more photos of the never ending quilt.

Ooh, this looks so beautiful and so warm and I can imagine you wearing it around your shoulders this summer when you go to the beach. Have fun in France, Susan!
