Here's a closer view and it is clickable to see larger. I used an ecru Perle cotton size 8 for all the handquilting. I think it adds a nice touch to the quilt; it is certainly primitive and not perfectly straight! Grant is so happy it is finished. I put the last stitches in just before he got home from an afternoon of golf.
I have lots of leftovers from this quilt and may end up making a coordinating pillow as well. I have so many favorite fabrics in this quilt I am happy to be able to enjoy them forever! Today while my nephew is installing a new faucet for us, I hope to get my words project finished since yesterday I ended up working on Grant's quilt instead. Tomorrow is supposed to be the deadline for getting them in but obviously mine will be late. Sorry, Tonya!
