2 months= 1 time consuming quilt.   What I learned: paper piecing, I can do something very different from what I normally do and like the end result, I can draft a pattern (even if simple-borders) and it can work the way I planned it,  not sure I will ever have a place for this in my house-but I like it anyway, I can work on something for 2 months and actually finish it without it becoming a UFO.  I will take it to the place where I rent a longarm and quilt it edge to edge-I would rather have it custom quilted but that isn't in the budget-I need to have some practice before I try to quilt something like this.  They have a nice star pattern that would go with the theme and I will like it just fine! Thank-you Janice Ellertson for a great pattern and class!

Last night finished middle and two 1" borders added

Top done with all borders on-wall hanging size 46x46
I may embroider a verse on the 2 turquoise strips but not sure yet. I have a couple in mind that fit-we'll see.  I am going to go clean my studio-yay!!

Woo-hoo!!! You did it! I am still trying to figure out how it is made.

Wow, it's gorgeous. It's great that you can rent a longarm and quilt for yourself. I'd love to get my paws on a longarm machine.
