Finally Another Finish

Two days of quilting hours on end and 5 hours of sewing binding on and it's done! Still not saying who this is for and it will be awhile before I divulge that. It's hard to get a good picture of the whole quilt. It's 77 X 89".





I love the fabric I used for the back. Very subtle floral.



It's in the washer. Still needs to be labeled.
Can't believe I only had one finish in July and now this will probably be my only August finish. But it feels good to have this particular one done.

Great job Mary. I love the material you used. Do you have a mid or long arm or do you do it on your sewing machine. Great job.

Love your quilt! Would you be willing to share where you got the pattern? We do alot of mystery quilts and this would be an awesome one.
Thanks in advance.

I drafted this block in Electric Quilt. I honestly don't remember where I saw the block but named the file "Carrie Nation Quilt" so apparently that is what it was called where ever I saw it. I should have made better notes about the source but didn't.

I googled Carrie Nation Quilt and got lots of sources, but I'm guessing I got it from Quilter's Cache http://www.quilterscache.com/C/CarrieNationBlock.html

Wonderful...this is so simple but elegant. Very lovely. You did a great job. Are you in a race? If you enjoy the process, what difference does it make how many quilts you finish? (That's what I keep telling myself anyway) I love to finish as many as I can too but I sure enjoy the journey. Hugs, Linda
