My Nearly Insane Journey is over!

After 5 years in the making with quite a bit of down time I have finally finished my quilt. I had it machine quilted by Judi Schon for those who live in Auckland New Zealand. Unfortunately the photos don't do justice to the quilting, but I am really pleased with it, and happy to have it finally finished.

If you click on the photos it will enlarge them. 
Thanks for looking

Finally Finished

Five years, seven months since I started.

I finally finished my Nearly Insane quilt last week.  The top was completed last December, spent several months with the long arm quilter, and then a couple of months back home while I -s-l-o-w-l-y- hand-sewed the binding (fighting some repetitive stress injuries in my hands and elbows).  I am still in love with it, and looking forward to taking it to my guild's show in October.
