The.....top.....is....DONE!

Towa was a big help.  Her cuteness is just so.... helpful.
Wonder why she had her back to me?    Anyway, the colors below, are more accurate....
....than how it photographed on my design wall ..... all pieced and sewn together!  Yes!  Please tell me you can feel the excitement emanating from my home this afternoon!!!
Thought it'd be fun to compare my top, photo below, right, to Karen's beautiful quilt, to the left... my inspiration.  It was tight quarters taking the photograph, so it looks a little cut-off and uneven.  Right now my quilt measures @48" x 64", which is plenty big enough for a lap quilt.... but am thinking about adding a 2 1/2" solid chocolate brown color border before moving on.  I like Karen's double solid color interior borders and think that might finish mine off nicely....
....so I guess that means, technically, I am not yet quite done with the top.  *sigh*

  2. Your quilt top turned out so beautiful. And I agree that Towa's cuteness has to be very helpful :)
