A Finished Quilt !!!

Yes, dear Reader, I am proud to tell you, that I have FInally finished my TeaRoses.

Quilted by Sue Baddley of Summit Creek Quilts.
And as of a two days ago, it now also has a binding :-)

AND as of today, there's even pictures :-)

And the pieced backing, using remains of the collection I used for the flowers

Sort-of close-up of the quilting. I chose an all-over, because I don't like my quilts too stiff. A good custom-job would probably be extremely beautiful, but also make the quilt really stiff and unyieldy. I like it as it is.

Dear freind, It's beautiful! Great choice of fabrics, lovely design. I clicked on the photos to see the quilting (lovely) and appreciate that none of the stitches show, the way they would with paper piecing. Just gorgeous. I would love to snuggle up under that one!
Aren't you glad you didn't have to whip-stitch to get this design? LOL

Really lovely, and the quilting is just right. I think an all-over pattern is perfect for a scrappy quilt like this one. I think custom quilting would get lost among all the pretty favrics!
