Alphabet Samper Quilt - finished

It's all finished. I finished hand sewing the binding and the sleeve in a marathon sewing session on Saturday.

It's in my dining room, the largest room in my apartment, so it's really center stage. This is the wall the quilt was designed for. It is a wall that will never get direct sunlight, thank goodness, yet the quilting shows up very well in all lighting situations

It's 44-1/2" x 62"

All it needs is a label. My mom has a color bubble jet printer, but she was sick all weekend, and I don't want to get sick, so I will print the label next weekend. I can't bring myself to write on the back of the quilt with a permanent marker.




btw, the quilt is taller than I am!

what a great finish! I like that you've put it in a high traffic area in your home so everyone can enjoy it. It's going to be a great conversation starter? I know quilters who don't know Tonya also start with "oooh, look at all that paper piecing" when they see my letter quilts. And then the enlightenment begins...
