Top completed!!

 I got my final border on!! WooHoo!! I need to trim the top border after I clear off my cutting table.
I've got my backing 108" wide and king size batt ready to go the quilters so she can baste it for me on her machine. It will be fun to quilt the motifs, although it may take me years, since I think I am the world's slowest hand quilter!!

  1. Lori -- Oh My Goodness !! It is absolutely beautiful ! There is no fast or slow for a hand quilter -- it is a love of detail and the pleasure is in the process! Thank you so much for doing this and inspiring me and others to invest in those things that we love. I'm in awe.

    Hugs.

    1. Nope, I plan on marking it as I go. Don't ask me how yet.....that's just the way I work. I'll figure it out when I get to it. :)

  9. Really super-duper!! You must be THRILLED to have a finished top. What bat will you use? Great idea to have it machine basted...that size to hand baste would be a huge task. Happy happy joy joy...the quilting will be fun.
