Two Years in the Making

I try my hardest to finish
quilts that I start.
I do have a few quilt tops that
have yet to be quilted.

This monster of a quilt sat in
my quilting room closet for
two long years.
I had every intention of quilting it
by hand because of it's size.

It is 118" x 102".
My poor sewing machine would
never be able to handle it.
Or maybe like, I would not be able to. 

I looked at it several times,
thinking, I will never finish this
and that would just not do.

So, I packed it up and sent it off
to be quilted.
(Let me tell you, it
wasn't easy to let it go)
This was to be the first quilt that
I had not quilted.

I just got it back a few days ago and
have had it long enough to put the
binding on it.

I absolutely love the way it turned out.
I chose a poppy design for the entire quilt.

It would have taken me years to complete
and I would have never been able
to give it to its intended owner
without knowing my limitations.

And so Here is my big Finish!
(I hope my parents are enjoying
their new quilt.  Only a few years late!!)

A big thank you to Missouri Star Quilt Company
for taking such good care of it.
