Finally a Finish!



Oh finally a finished-finished quilt. Binding and all. It is the Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt called "Orange Crush."  I made mine in Mardi Gras colors.  It is a HUGE quilt  and I had to use a fence as a quilt holder.

I adore this quilt and cannot wait to get it all washed and dried and snuggly.

The backing fabric is a Minick & Simpson fabric by Moda. If you click on the photo, you can see the wonderful long-arm quilting by Awesome Beth.

Gomez has already tested and approved this quilt for napping purposes.

OOOOOOOO!!! i love it!

and it's FINISHED!!! Bonnie's quilts always take me forever to finish - i dunno how she turns out so many of them (unless she does not EVER sleep) ... yours is truly gorgeous!

A finish! And as Dianne says, a finish that is hard to accomplish. I still have one of Bonnie's in pieces and fah fah from finished lol.

Yippee-not so orange crush is beautiful. I agree with Mr. G. Hope you bring it to Thimbles. Beth sent me Scrappy yesterday-working on the binding

Your quilt turned out great. It's really striking! As usual, I must say I love your accompanying cat pic. It must have passed Gomez's comfort test! He looks so cozy.

Congratulations on this great finish! The fabrics you used are smashing!
Even though blue is a cold color, it looks very warm in this cosy quilt!
