Yippee!! I've joined Susi in the celebratory glass of wine! The top is finished and I plan to baste it tomorrow in preparation for hand quilting. I'm sorry the picture is so dark...it would no longer fit on my design wall in the basement and I tried to pin it up in the shop classroom for a picture, but the lighting was not as good as I had hoped. I will try for better lighting with the next post.
I wanted blank places to feature hand quilting, so I decided to draw my own borders using a few of Corliss's motifs and doing a few of my own.
Even though I made changes to Corliss's pattern to better reflect my family, I will be forever grateful to her for making this wonderful pattern. It has been a great journey through the blocks...I've had input from the husband, the daughter, and countless talented quilting friends. It has taken a village and I really appreciate all the input from them, all the ladies participating on this blog and the quilt blogging community as a whole. Thank you Lizzie for this great quilting community!
Now...who will have finish number 3?????
