Is that what I think it is?

Yes, that is my finished quilt. After only 19 months of working on this thing it is now complete! I am so excited to be done working on it. It is not hanging over my head just waiting to be finished. The fabric is Heather Bailey's Pop Garden. The backing and binding is all Paisley blue from the Pop Garden line. Since I am without a big fancy quilting sewing machine and sending it to a long arm was entirely too expensive for my budget, I hand quilted in simple straight lines. I like the simplicity of the quilting and how it does not compete with the variety and business of the fabric.
I am really happy with the way it came out. I may not do another hand quilted one for a long time.

Please enjoy the pictures!! I worked so hard! Yay!

Its GORGEOUS!!!! You really did such an amazing job! I wish I had bought more of that Heather Bailey line, its fabulous!


Oh so lovely! The colors and print are so exciting and you did a fabulous job hand quilting it ! Now I know why it took you all of those months. I am a machine quilter and to do an all over pattern wouldn't really be that expensive, but I know that these days, the way the economy is, that every penny saved counts!
