It's a little embarrassing how long I've been working on this quilt. I'm not even going to admit when I bought the fabric. But I still love it, and I decided that before I left Seattle I would get it done. I almost got there. :) Just the binding left to do. Add it to the list.
The only reason that I actually have it quilted is that I got a little help. I love quilting my quilts--it's one of the most satisfying parts for me (I know many of you disagree with me here!). But as this was a large quilt and I really didn't want to risk messing it up, I sent it out to be quilted by a professional on a long-arm quilting machine. Best. Decision. Ever.
My friend Karen has an amazing set up. I covet her machine! The hardest part was deciding what design to use. Check out just a sampling of them here and here. The other great thing was Karen's personal advice. Otherwise it might have been too overwhelming to choose a design!
