My Second Quilt Finish – Fit for a Queen

Hello, my dahlings! Don’t you just love that feeling of completion?  You finish that last hand stitch on the binding (machine binding? oh, no, no, no) and think to yourself, “Whew, I can’t believe I did that!” Oh, believe, this one!  For some reason, I decided that the second quilt I would make–eva, eva–would be queen size.  Mmm hmm. No, she didn’t. Oh, yes, she did.  It took me long enough, and I consider my training wheels to still be on for this one, but, whew, it is done.  
I want to hang it high and let it fly, but it is destined to be a gift at the end of February, so I can’t quite show you the full thing yet.  Trust, you’ll be seeing this beauty again though, in all its glory.  So until then, here are a few close ups so you can at least see the colour palette and some of the fabric choices.

    that crumpled up quilt is so cozy looking, I can hardly stand it! that quilt is just begging someone to wrap up in it! 🙂 I've been considering using the blue colorway of your binding print to bind my Madrona Road quilt, but I wasn't completely sold until I saw how fabulous yours looks. I think there needs to be some fabric shopping in my near future…
