Presenting the finished quilt top!


It's done!! Finally!! Just in the nick of time, too. This pattern is by The Rabbit Factory (a Canadian quilt pattern company). It measures a little more than 2 yards wide and 2 1/4 yards long. I have to sew the backing and the strips together for the binding, but the top is done! I'll probably bring it to the quilt shop on Sunday. I'm on their schedule to have it quilted, so I will be able to pick this baby up before we leave for Florida. Woo-hoo! I am tired, but happy.

Hi everyone! Thank you for all of your lovely comments. Monica, I am going to hang this up as soon as we arrive at our new house in Florida. I'm not even going to let the packers and movers pack up the hammer and nails. LOL! As soon as we find the quilt rack (it'll be hard to miss since it's 84-inches long) I am going to get on a step ladder, clamp this baby into the quilt rack and hang it up on the wall.
