Chains done gone and finished!



Not that there was a race, but I had to move onto other projects and with my attention span of a hamster with ADD I knew I had to finish before moving on. Decided to use a simple grid as the original inspiration piece, but much closer (approx. and in grid). The back contains the design brought into modern times as I see it. It's ultimate destination is unclear, but it'll be someone with a strong personality. Thanks again Tonya for the chance to learn and try something new!

Your design and layout of the quilt is wonderful. I'm in awe of the visions and ideas that so many quilters have.

beautiful job. What size did this finish out at? And did you 'eyeball' your stitching line? I'm still in the "tape" mode of hand quilting, but trying to break out of the rigidness of my quilting.

I LOVE this quilt! I love everything about it! I also know what you mean about finishing and moving on to the next thing!

I love it especially the connection to one of my favorite songs :)

Thanks everyone-
The finished quilt is about 48x50. I eyeballed most of the quilting, so the inch grid is an estimate.

Your quilt is just amazing!! And you got all that hand quilting done so fast.....not in a million years could I ever do that. Thanks for the inspiration!

Love, love, LOVE it!

Kathy- neither could I! It's machine quilted. At some point I want to take up hand quilting again, but I love to piece too much and never seem to have the time.
