Satisfied...

2.08.2012

This quilt was a bear to get quilted. It was too big for my long arm, so I wrestled, tugged and pulled it through Miss Juki. It was exhausting...


but oh so worth it...


I kept the quilting light. I wanted it to be soft...


I did manage wash and dry it in my machines, but next time, I am going to take it where I can use a front loader washer and dryer. They would do a much better job. 


I decided to stop hoarding the chenille I had in my stash and use it as the boarder. 


Fussy cut flower for the center of the Dresden. 

Now I am ready for a new project, but on a much smaller scale. =)
