Finished Hearth and Home Customer Quilt

Finally finished this king-sized beauty.  After 2 months of quilting on it, I felt like I was giving up a member of the family!  My customer loved it and that makes me happy.  Here are a few more pictures.

Two of us standing on chairs and so much of the quilt was still on the floor!  I love the medallion center with the sampler of blocks surrounded by - I haven't a clue what the name of the half-cream-half maroon block so if you know, please tell me - and the basket blocks.

This is just the "sampler" portion of the quilt.  It was really fun to figure out what quilting to do in each block.  In addition to the other quilting, I did SID on almost every piece of fabric in these blocks.  I tried to quilt lots in the light fabric to let the darker colors of the blocks pop out.

Details of some of the blocks.

You really do nice work! Do you quilt by appointment? These gorgeous things do take time.

This quilt is fantastic - piecing, quilting, fabric selection, and all! I can't stop looking at it. Thanks for sharing!
