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.

Wow, that is an amazing quilt. Not giving up really paid off. Are you going to wait to start your next project?

What a beautiful quilt. I tried using your link to the website for this quilt but it didn't work :( What will your next project be? Anxious to see.

I just made my first two NI blocks and would like to share the pictures? Could you please tell me how I can do that?
