The quilt that took forever...

If there are any quilters left out there this one's for you!  I finished this project a week or so ago.  My Aunt commissioned a throw quilt for her family room some time ago.  When I saw this fabric (Pure from Sweetwater for Moda) I knew it would be perfect.  We decided on a pattern from Sweetwater as well.  She chose her favorite fabrics from the line and I think we are both happy with the result.  I have to admit that this has been in the works for a while.  I intended to start it last fall but got too busy with my home improvement projects and the holidays.  But it is finished and I am thrilled that it matches her room.  These photos were taken at my house, I'll post some down the road of this quilt in its true home!










I did the quilting myself on a rented long arm machine at Millie P's Quilt shop in Anoka, MN.  Well, the computer actually "did" the quilting but I did the rest.

Now I am getting ready to start another quilting project for the Twin Cities Suburban Modern Quilt Guild.  A Table runner swap!  Just got the cute fabric today.  I'll post the finish after I surprise the recipient!
