Exquisite, Finished

The Exquisite Quilt is all finished. My son took this picture of me holding it, with Gina's wonderful quilt from DQS5 in the background. This quilt is for my godchild, who is due in September.
It finishes out at 39-1/2" x 44-1/2". You can click the photos to enlarge.


(It's not very bright out, so the colors might appear duller than they really are. I'll try again later, but I am sure the Sun has its own plans.)The Sun came out and brought the Wind with him!

It is truly beautiful. Such happy colors. The idea that you do all of this while dealing with your arthritis is an inspiration. I appreciate the close-up of the blind stitch as well. Well done!
