Finally Finished

I finally finished my first queen sized quilt a couple nights ago!  YAY!  I’ve been working on two quilts at the same time.  It has taken since Jan 2014 but the blocks were done and I have now completed one quilt.  After a much needed day or two of down time and clean up, I am now going to start on the second quilt.

Detail of the fabric I used.  The tan strips and the white binding both have a small floral design.

This is not a perfect quilt but it is my first full-sized quilt and I was proud of it.  At the risk of sounding like a cliche, “what a long strange trip it has been.”  I learned a lot and my second quilt, (that is about to be quilted) should be even better than the first.  I’m giving the Sunbonnet Sue /Sunbonnet Sam quilt to my mom for Christmas.  So those of you that know me, ssssh!  Don’t blab!  Now as long as my sisters doesn’t show her these images my secret should be safe 😉
