Happy Saturday! Happy Second Day of Spring! Happy National Quilting Day! Happy to be Alive! So many things to be happy about to. Happy for the rain that is watering my freshly seeded lawn! Ok, I guess I am in a good mood this morning. Maybe that is because I just finished a photo shoot with my favorite quilting finish EVER! My Swoon is FINALLY finished! It only took me 3 years and 2.5 months to finish, but it is done!
Our bed is king sized and it doesn’t quite hang over the edges, but I’m ok with that, this allows me to see the entire quilt at once!
I would need to be about 3 feet taller to get a more over the bed and centered shot, but I think you get the idea!
This is my backing. I decided to use some of my favorite fat quarters to make a gorgeous star and have a reversible quilt! I love it!
Oh, Anne loves the quilt too! She couldn’t help but jump into on of my pictures. Did you notice the super huge gap? She lost her two front teeth this month!
