The Quilt is Complete!!

It's done. Complete. It's PERFECT!!! From laying out the individual fabric squares (read November 26, 2006 post, yes, I do mean 2006) to having them stitched together for the top (December 01, 2007).

Looking back over the progress reminds me of the fun in swapping squares and receiving squares from family and friends. Looking forward to the mail each day. It also reminds me of all the work my MIL Joy did in making this the absolute perfect 100 Good Wishes Quilt for Alyzabeth An!

I love the border and prairie points, look at the very bottom right corner of the picture where you can see the stitches. The picture below shows the stitching on the back side. The hand stitching is unbelievably beautiful! Isn't it GRAND? Thank you!!

I love it that Nana Joy included her tag. This way Lizzy will always be reminded of the loving hands that stitched her quilt...

Each square is so important. So meaningful. I'm constantly stopping to look and touch the individual squares and just had to share this with you all. The quilt is filled with memories and good wishes and a lifetime of love that Lizzy will have for her lifetime...all captured in her 100 Good Wishes Quilt.

Thank you so much.

I like... I have just had an offer from a lady who is a customer and has a quilt making business... she is going to make my 100 square quilt for free... I have some leftover and with those make a small quilt for the crib...
