    Default top done...after 2 years!

    Some of you may remember i started this mammoth patchwork about 2.5 years ago. Well i took a huge break after the puppy arrived as it was impossible to work with her "help". She "helped me today by standing on it & leaving a muddy paw print!
    I got it out last week and after a considerable amount of unpicking i have at last got the pieced top done.
    The quilting bit is rather terrifying....... no idea what to do next. I want to do it myself i think as i have put in so much time on it but i really don't want to mess it up!! Never done anything like this before - and probably won't again!!
    I had to take it outside to photograph as it is too big of the floor inside! It measures about 90 x 80".
    Hope you like it.
    Thanks for looking

    I remember this one! It was pretty then and beautiful now! You did a wonderful job on this quilt. You must be excited to see the top finished!

    That is one beautiful, huge quilt. Congratulations for completing it. Are you contemplating hand quilting it? What size harp do you have on your machine?
