Nearly Ten Years Later

27 09 2009

The end of next month marks ten years since my first long arm quilting machine was delivered.  Just today I FINALLY finished a quilt for my bed!!!!  After hundreds of customer quilts I have a quilt.  I finished the top in June and discussed my color choices in this post.  Then in July I mentioned I had snuck one of my own quilts on the machine in this post.  This morning I finally finished the binding.  So the finished pictures.

I started the quilt early in 2006 and finished it today.  So about 3.75 years in the making.  The quilting is Meandering Magic from Suzanne’s books, but done with stressless feathers.  This gets marked of the UFO list — YEAH!

Beautiful! I love how it’s a scrappy sampler but it looks so cohesive and together! Great job in piecing and quilting!
