Hurray for D. O. N. E. !!!
My giant Flower Garden Quilt is complete.
cue the angels singing …
24 blocks and 4 borders
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.
I needle-turned those horses!
I am that awesome … once.
I did add a little wool
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.
what to do with this all the gorgeousness?
