Ok, here's my first finish for March and it is on my March Get It Done Challenge list. I am so glad this one is finished. It's been hanging around in my closet as a flimsy for several years. I saw this quilt on the quilt store wall the first time I ever went to see my son in Michigan. I didn't buy it then as it was a block of the month and they didn't have any more kits available. The store owner took my name and address and called me when she had the kit all made up and mailed it to me a few months later. I'll be calling this Michigan Garden. It is a Thimbleberries pattern and RJR fabric and I fell in love with it when I saw it. When I finished the top I didn't know any longarm quilter that could do it so I put it in the closet to age a bit. I did some work for a friend and she is a longarm quilter. She quilted a few quilts for me and her quilting is wonderful. I gave this to her last year to quilt and she gave it back to me just recently. I cut out the binding and bound it yesterday for slow stitch Sunday. I love this quilt and will be sleeping under it tonight. I gave you a glimpse of it yesterday but here it is in all it's glory. I wish you could see the quilting on it but I took a few pictures and the quilting doesn't show up but I know it's there and I know how beautiful it is...you're just going to have to trust me. Here's my Michigan Garden....
Now, I'm going to knit for awhile and watch Dallas to see what happens to J R Ewing. Enjoy your evening and happy stitching!
