Dear Jane finish after 17 years



It's finished. I hand sewed the binding down on Sunday having taken it to Jersey Modern Quilt Guild on Saturday. As I was getting ready on Saturday to go to our meeting and found the missing corner. Damn. Too late, never mind. That will teach me that I need to be tidier.


I used a swirly pantograph in with thread top and bottom. I took it off the machine early on Saturday morning and quickly did a rough trim of the excess backing and wadding. On Sunday I trimmed the quilt, machine stitched on the binding to the front and hand stitched 240 inches of binding to the back.


I am pleased with how it looks and will celebrate by stitching up a project bag for myself.

You GO!!!! I really love your colors and the way the border triangles call to mind pine trees. My poor Jane top has been waiting 2 or 3 years to be quilted. I'm going to try to make that happen later this year. CONGRATULATIONS! That's a big finish, and a wonderful quilt.
