ANNIVERSARY QUILT FINISHED!


I finished the 25th anniversary over 2 months ahead of the date (July 1)!  It's good to have that one out of the way.  It is a queen size but will be used on a double bed - so it will be long enough to tuck in the pillows and to hang down on the sides.

Hanging sideways on the fence and still too long.

Close up of the quilting.



I am now working on my GS's high school graduation quilt (son of the couple receiving the anniversary quilt).  It will be easier to quilt as I'll do an overall design.

Happy Easter to all!

I love EVERYTHING about this quilt. My bedroom walls are a light brown that this would match perfectly. It is gorgeous. The quilting is just right for it.
