My Celebration Quilt Top is Completed !


I am so happy that I finished my quilt top.  I started this quilt at Barb's Quilt Retreat in November of last year.




My Mom and I picked all the fabrics last fall.  This quilt will be our donation quilt for this year.  We make one in memory of my Dad every year.  We will give it to the Fireside Dinner Theater to raffle for their fundraising efforts for Rainbow Hospice of Jefferson County - Wisconsin.

This is what it looked like before yesterday.



Then it started to come together...




Border? color? size?


I chose one black border and then black and red fabric for the final border.  I will bind with black.




It is about 90" X 90".  I will quilt it in May!

I am so pleased.

Onto the next project...

Enjoy your day!

Marcia

'I just want to Celebrate!' Congrats on the quilt top. It will make a great donation/raffle quilt. Love those colors, even if they aren't your usual blues.
