At last..... hooray

 
Finished at last, it has taken so long to have this quilted that I was beginning to think it would never happen but here it is and I'm so happy.
 
Binding and label done too....
 
I'll let the piccies tell the story......
 
 
 
 
 
Yes I know it says 2013 .... I had the label made last year with the date and quilters name.... the first quilter had it for 3 months and then couldn't do it so I had to pick another quilter, of course I needed to change the name and I just couldn't be bothered to alter the year..... its not far out..... I have been trying to get it quilted since June 2012..... success at last.
 
 
 
Looks like new curtains are needed .....  it will be great to have a choice of quilts and I'll be able to change them when the mood takes me.
 
Yahoooooooo.
