Don't you just love getting finished with a quilt? And when it's a holiday quilt, just in time for that holiday and not a month after? I'm best known for the month after. :) There were many "joys in quilting" on this particular piece - I described a few in the previous two posts - but those pauses in my sanity have passed and I'm in love with this quilt! I have no idea where it will hang because it is much too big for my front door as I had planned but you can bet I'll find a place. I added a pin stripe binding and I think it was just the right one. :)
I stippled the background and I can see a lot of progress over the last several months - finally!
