|It turned out better than I could have imagined.|
I went to my mom's for a day of sewing and got the top and backing put together with the help of my mom. Thanks again mom! The finished quilt is about 44" wide by 68" long, it still amazes me how much they seem to shrink. This one especially but I think that may have to do with the fabrics and knowing I didn't prewash them I can't complain. I knew I wanted to have it quilted with something Tarheel related but not over the top. I took it to a long arm quilter here locally because I was pressed for time. Remember when I said I would never use this person again? Turns out I did and now I really mean it! It's not that I don't like the quilting I do and she was even nice enough to order the foot design special for me. But sometimes it's the little things, like the fact I asked for it to be quilted in white that didn't happen obviously, but I do like it. And there are some rather large spaces that don't have quilting if you ask me. In the end I love the way it turned out though so I really shouldn't complain.
