Cora, finally done

I finshed it last night, got the binding on and everything.

This is by far the largest quilt I've made for us! I've made larger ones for customers (some with the piecing and all - the largest one that springs to mind was one for a lady in Germany a few years ago, a huge red and white lone star about 100 X 120").

This quilt finished 97" square after the quilting. It did 'take up' a little, but it's quilted pretty heavily. I keep going in and petting it.


Here's a little shot of it right after trimming, before the binding went on...





Yummy texture, eh? Gotta love cotton batting. It's going to be wonderfully rumply after it's washed.







And a little shot here of the top edge of the quilt after binding:









Don't bright colours just make you happy?






And a little arty oblique shot, just 'cause I can't help myself.






Happy stitching,

Lisa
