Triangle Quilt - "Amish Lib."

At last I finished!  
I took the center panel with me to Gwen Marston's Beaver Island Quilt Retreat the first week on October, promising myself that I would get the words and the borders finished while I was there.  Hooray, it happened!

After getting home I worked on the quilting, first covering those triangles with crosshatching.

Then I put uneven feathers in the two side panels, "echo-ed" the words, and put straight lines behind them.  [I had decided that the YEAR would be easier in Roman numerals because there are only straight lines for 2010.]

I know I missed the deadline, but I am really pleased with the result.  
It makes me smile!

There was a deadline??? Love it, especially the centre triangles, they look exceptionally jolly. And what a good idea for roman numerals!! A very classy touch, which every liberated quilt needs.
