It's DONE!!!

It's done, it's done, it's done it's done.... (do a happy dance, it's done and on my bed!!!!) Finally, I've finished my bedspread!!!! YEA!!!! I haven't had much time to sew for myself lately due to the success of my Dreaming of Stitches shop. I stopped taking custom orders before Christmas because I am expecting a baby in January. One goal that I wished I could get done before the baby comes is my quilt... call it nesting or what you may, I really wanted to get it done.

I started seriously quilting it again last week, I already had half of it done. Then I couldn't find my free hand quilting foot. (I'm afraid a little girl walked off with it or threw it out.) My sister-in-law let me borrow hers so I could finish my quilt. In less than a week, I finished all the quilting and all the binding. It's all done!!

I still need to finish the pillow shams and a few decorative pillows. (The shams are just a front right now and don't have a back.)

Here is the quilting details, the shadows help the quilting pop out. It took FOREVER to do the squares, thus the reason it took so long to do the whole quilt. But I love how it turned out.

And what two year old can resist jumping on a brand new bedspread?

Previous blog posts about the quilt:

I can't believe I finished the quilt top in May and that it has taken me this long to quilt it.

Quilt progress in March:

I bought the fabric almost a year ago, I can say I finished the quilt in less than a year... barely:
