Flight of Fancy, updated



I finished sewing the binding last night. Now I have to sew the hanging sleeve on the back. This a pretty mediocre picture of the quilt, but it was approaching midnight and I really should have been in bed. I'll replace this lackluster shot later, but in the meantime, you get to see Chris's fantastic quilting.

I do not quilt my own quilts. As my friend Julie says, "I quilt by check."

 Update, 7:24 PM.  I got home from work and set up the big display rack. It was slightly overcast, and a bit breezy, but I knew I wouldn't have another opportunity to photograph the quilt for a long time.  You can click the photo and then click again to get more details.

Here's the back. I didn't have any idea just how BIG the signature panel was when I made it.  Oh well.

Tonight I'll sew down the rest of the hanging sleeve and tomorrow I'll deliver it to Quilted Threads.

I could look at this for hours. I love the birds (of course) and the quilting is so intriiguing. That pink bird, just to the left and above the upsidedown teenagers ... that plume coming from her head is amazing.

Congratulations on the finish - I saw this one when it was freshly quilted and it is drop dead gorgeous.
