Hurray for  D. O. N. E. !!!
My giant Flower Garden Quilt is complete.

cue the angels singing …

24 blocks and 4 borders
all applique
and 1" finished pieced sashing

My idea to add the borders after I quilted them worked out great.
You can see on the left, I covered the seam with a strip of matching fabric.

Doesn't the quilting look awesome from the back?!!

Most of applique was done by hand.

Yes …
I needle-turned those horses!
I am that awesome … once.

I did add a little wool
because …
well … I LOVE wool applique
some of the pieces were just too little or too curvy for me.

Quilting this was such fun.
I used lots of different fills.

It took me 1 year to complete 90%.
and another year to complete the last 10%.

I was really apprehensive about the whole "quilt-as-you-go" idea for the borders. I'm so very pleased with how it turned out.  

Now …
what to do with this all the gorgeousness?
