So Proud!!

Today I finished the Metro Medallion quilt. I have been waiting
patiently to get this off the frame so I can see the back.

I was so happy with how this has turned out, I was doing a
happy dance in my sewing room.

There is nothing like the satisfaction of seeing all your hard
work and time come together and work out how
you planned it.


The texture on this quilt is amazing and the back
I think I love more.

Once I get the binding on I will take better photos with my
camera and not just the phone, but I am too impatient, I am having trouble photographing this quilt
because of the black and the red on red, these photos really don't do it justice.

Be back soon with better photos.

Wow wow wow. I can't believe how lovely that is. I am so jealous as I have that quilt together from the QAL but don't know how I am going to quilt it on my home machine to do it justice. That is just so cool.

I bet you were doing a dance around the studio. This is a very striking quilt - very strong design and beautiful fmqing just makes it. Is it pieced? It looks too complicated.
