Scrappy Plates Bound...

WARNING: Picture heavy post.
 I'm finished! I did the binding, and now I'm almost giddy!

 I thought I'd start out by taking a few outdoor photos. 
(Dramatic, don't you know?)

Gratuitous "Corgi on Quilt" photo.

Then, I moved inside to take a few more photos.
It's a queen-size quilt on our king-size bed.

 More closeups to show you Susan's stunning longarm work.
(By the way, Susan Slaton of Wazoo Quilter in Punta Gorda, FL)

 I'm so glad that I made this quilt. I adore the "Martinique" fabric line,
the way that it all came together in piecing, applique' work and assembly...
and Susan's work was the icing on the cake...

 I think the back is just as beautiful as the front...and it highlights
the longarm work. Susan is a real artist, don't you think?

So, it's finished (except for a label). Now. it's onward to the next project.
I want to finish the American Treasures block in the next day or so.

Color me tickled!!!

Donna, It is absolutely beautiful. It always makes you feel awesome when you get them completely finished. Should get to visit more often with Hubby in a nursing home recuperating from hip surgery along with some other problems. I have missed my blogging friends. Have a great weekend. Hugs Your Missouri Friend.

You created such a lovely quilt with the choice of fabrics and plates and border layouts...and yes, Susan put the icing on the quilt with her beautiful longarm finesse. Every stitch is just the perfect compliment. Congratulations on completing this heirloom to be treasured for generations. Blissful Dear...
