It's Finished!

I had this top pieced a year ago but didn't get around to quilting until now. It's an extra big queen size quilt for my bed. I can't wait to get it washed and dried so I can use it. My dryer has been broken for a week and the repair guy came today so it's going to be washed soon.
Here is the back, I quilted this with my Gammill and really love the design.
Both cats went to the vet for yearly shots. I was a bit stressed with taking them both together, mainly because they need that little bit of tender loving care and I found it difficult to have two to deal with. It took a day and a half for them to finally get some energy to eat. Lula sleeps most of the day anyway but seeing Boo Boo sleeping so much was not normal. Today they are feeling much better and are eating again.

Happy Quilting

Your quilt is beautiful, I love a quilt that is so beautiful on the back that you can turn it over and use it that way for a change. Did you do the quilting? Glad the kitties are feeling better.

Congratulations on your finish! Great feeling, isn't it?--Probably not as good a feeling as spending the first night under it!

It is very pretty and I like the dark colors in it. The border fabric is nice.

Poor Madeline went to the vet today for her rabies shot. She is a big baby. Shook the whole time.

Linda said...

Quilt is gorgeous, as is the quilting! Beautiful.

Poor kitties! Shots are no fun!

sunny said...

The quilt and quilting are beautiful! So are the kitties. I love calicos/torties. My little cat has such a hard time with shots, that I'm not sure I'll ever take her back. Poor little girl.

Allyson said...

Very pretty quilt. And you did a wonderful job on the quilting.

Hope your cats are feeling better soon. Our two little monsters go in next week for their annual check-ups. Should be quite the circus.

Feels good to finish projects, and such a lovely one.

Terry said...

What a beautiful quilt! The quilting looks great too! I don't blame your kitties...if I had to get shots, I'd want to go and curl up for a long nap too! LOL

nancy huggins said...

Qhat an awesome quilt..Poor little kitties..we do worry about our fur babies when they are not acting normal don't we...glad your kitties are feeling better.
My DD has to give her kittie Mia a shot every day for the rest of her life. It is a drip bag and her kidneys were shutting down and damaged her liver. It is because the people that had her before Nellie abused her. She is such a sweet kittie.

Jan said...

Yes, it's finished, and it is beautiful!

Beautiful! Love the colors and how you used them within the block patterns.

Shirley said...

Stunning quilt and such a sweet quiltpwtern, did you do that on your sewingmachine, or are you so lucky to work with a longarm? I'm still uncertain of the right quiltingpatern for my pinwheelquilt, do I use an all-over of do I work around the pinwheels; aaargh, I'll get there, and in the meanwhile I'll enjoy reading blogs, waiting for inspiration.
