Done! Done! DONE!

Yes, I am finally done with Kimberly's quilt.  I actually finished it last week and it turned out so beautiful.  I am extremely pleased with it.  You've seen it in pieces, here and there, but here's a re-cap and additional photos of my "journey" ...
You can see that I am using all of my concentration skills to work the quilting machine, intent on getting it done.  Here I am in action:

Now ... the finished quilt...

 I absolutely LOVE the colors of this fabric line.  I was skeptical at first, but let Kim pick her fabric.
I will admit that I am lazy when it comes to sewing on the trim.  On my first quilt, I sewed the trim on by hand, and decided - right then and there - that I am not patient enough to do that.  So I have been sewing the edges on my quilts using a long zigzag stitch.  I'm happy with that.
Since this quilt is large enough to put on her bed, I wanted to make matching pillow cases.
Of course!  They just add that finished touch!  Can't wait to see it on her bed!

You are so bad. It is in my mind - I'm working on it.

WOW! You do an amazing job with EVERYTHING you undertake. I bet Kimmy was ecstatic! Hang in there, Katie. I know your mom - she will have one for you soon!

I've never seen anything like that quilting machine - I don't get out much - but it's awesome! The quilt is beautiful - I love the colors and patterns.
