    [​IMG] Been working NON-STOP for 3 days, putting in 12 - 16 hour days and I JUST FINISHED my mom's quilt, so she'll have it tonight for Christmas! YAY!!!!!! [​IMG]

    Here it is - I'm pretty darn proud of it (it looks a little crooked, but its not, its just the way its layed out on the floor because I was trying to get it all in the photo). Its backed by white/cream colored flannel and measures 100 X 70 inches.

    I hope she loves it as much as I do!

    WOW - Nice!!!!

    My Mom has quilted for years, so I have an idea how much work that takes.

    VERY nice job.

    Quote:That came out soooo nice!!!! Does your Mom have any idea that you have been working on this? I picture a few tears rolling when she see this, it is "So Special".

    I'm so proud of you and the work that you have done on this. A quilter's heart is a wonderful thing. Quilts are so much more than just fabric, they are love held together by cloth. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

    Oh, Hennysmom.............I am speechless.
















    That is B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L and I am pretty sure that your Mom loves it already. You did a wonderful job. I know what you mean by all the hours put into a piece.

    You really outdone yourself. Give yourself a treat for the accomplishment.

    Congrats on your first completed quilt. Make sure you take a pic and get it printed and keep it in an album.
