It's finished

I took the advice that lots of you kindly gave me and didn't put any borders on the quilt. This decision was made easier by finding a striped fabric that I fell in love with so I used to make a wide binding. Hopefully you can see the quilting if you click on the photo and expand it, though it's just a simple stipple.


I have a huge sense of accomplishment about finishing this quilt. It feels so good to look at it and think *I designed that, I made it and I quilted it*. Sure there are things I would change but I am proud that it is all my one work. I can't thank Tonya enough for giving me the opportunity to challenge myself in this way. And also everyone who has left comments - thank you for the encouragement.

The big question is.... what next?

It's really a joyful quilt! I just want to know how big it is, since I don't have a sense from the picture. for the record, mine in the post below is about 37 by 28 inches.
