I accidentaly just posted about the quilt on my family blog and it's supposed to be a surprise for my sister and she gets the emails from my family blog. Argh. Oh well. So here's what I posted and deleted over there:
I probably shouldn't be posting about this quite yet as I still need to add the final border. I'm just so excited about how far I've come though so here you go. You get two pictures because I could not decide which to post:
After I finish sewing the final border on tonight, it's off to my Mom's to finish the rest. She and I will pick out some backing fabric, get it machine quilted, bind it, then ship it off to the happy couple. It has been a fun and bumpy ride getting this thing sewn. I have enjoyed it for the most part and it has been especially nice to have my friend working with me and helping me all along the way. It helps it go faster and be funner when you have someone to work with. This quilt wouldn't win any ribbons at a fair, but I'm proud of it and I think my sister will like it.
