That’s right the final stitches were taken!  I am so pleased to be finished with this monster quilt top.  Of course it is very hard to get a photo of a large quilt in the house – Joseph’s Coat is done!!

Before I forget today is the last day for voting on the quilts over at Amy’s Creative Side – if you haven’t voted yet I sure would appreciate you voting for Star Crazy.  see this post for the photo and how to get there.

I started this quilt top in July 2011 so I finished it in less than a year! pretty good for hand piecing.  I didn’t work on it in September and October and didn’t do a lot on it in January – so I will say it took about 8 months of off and on work.  I have no idea on the hours, I didn’t keep track.  It will go on the quilting frame soon.

The corner finished the last circles sewed in place.

Nope that’s only half of it

Out to the swing for one of those shots like in the magazines – nope still can’t see all of it.

On the lawn, in between wind gusts I got this at an angle hanging off the side of the deck.

I’ll give it another try little bit – I have an idea I will see if it will work for a full shot.
