Ready, Set, Quilt

I finished my quilt top! This one is going to go into my guest room (which, of course, means I have to make new curtains, pillow shams, etc.) This is the block of the month from last year (Quik Quilts), so yes, I have been working on it for over 1-1/2 years! I'm so excited to hand quilt it, even though it will definitely take longer than whipping it up on my machine. After Stacy and I set it up in the family room, we realized that it is the biggest one yet! I am hoping to keep it up for about 5 weeks, then I will baste it and "hoop" the rest of it, so I can stow it behind my chair when I'm not quilting. (This is NOT one of the quilts I'll be finishing this month!)
