Finish it Friday

 Here she is, in all her glory. It was a gorgeous day out today, so I took the opportunity to recruit husband and son for some help photographing this wonderful quilt. It is Thanksgiving, by Judy Martin, in her book Patchwork Among Friends. I Quilted it with a fern leaf type free hand design in all the open areas, and continuous curves in the leaf blocks. This quilt was a joy to piece, with the instructions clear, and the piecing easy, although there was an awful lot of it. But so very very worth it.
Here's a closer look at the bottom corner. This quilt has been just over a year in the making. It finished up at 98x98 inches square. It has my usual striped faux piped binding. I love this quilt!! I'm linking up to TGIFF and Link a Finish Friday, just because I'm so excited about this quilt that I have to share it.

  6. That is one very beautiful quilt! The quilting works so well too - it gives a swirling effect to the maple leaves - and of course, they're swirling all over the quilt! I don't know how you decide on the quilting design, but it always seems to match the top just perfectly!
