I finished my Bird of Paradise quilt!! Appliqued and quilted by hand - only the assembly of the blocks and basting was done by machine.
With the horses racing along the bottom you'd think I'd have been racing to a finish. Actually I started this quilt in September of 2010. Quilting began in May of 2016 and finished in Sept of 2017. Yeah - September. It took me 5 months to trim and bind this quilt. It was like an anticlimax. And, I'm not sure why. I loved working on this project so much - I miss working on this project. It's a fairly large quilt and I really don't have anywhere in mind to hang it. I'm really happy with how it turned out - I'm just not really sure what to do with it.
It's a large quilt to display. I'll find a spot for it somewhere I'm sure.
Civil War Bride quilt I wanted that look as well. I learned a few things about marking while I worked on it too. There were challenges :0)
