The quilting is done!

I finished the quilting on my Scrappy Trip Around the World Quilt!  It is huge!  108 inches square!

Yes, I know the dark print kind of sticks out, but that's okay!
The cats love it!

 I have a very thick top mattress, and the quilt still almost touches the floor!

I cut the binding and sewed it together last night.  Tonight I will iron it and put the binding on!   I have a driving force to get this finished before my surgery.  

Have a great day ya'll!

We had field day at school on Friday, I got sunburned but it was a lot of fun!

I love it! It's huge! How in the world did you quilt it on a DM?!

Your TATW looks gorgeous - I love all that color going on!

Turned out gorgeous. Binding is probably easy peasy compared to quilting that beast.

What a huge project! Congratulations!
Surgery? I must have missed a post, Yikes!

Great top. Lots of great colors in it.

I think it lovely, and after quilting all of that, the binding is going to be a piece of cake. To think it's all done on a people powered machine, amazing! Praying for a safe surgery, and a fast, full recovery.

Congrats on finishing this huge quilt! As far as your surgery and not being able to sit still, get several handwork projects together and everything necessary to work on them. Keep them close at hand so you can work on them while you recover. I hope everything goes well and you recover quickly.

It's gorgeous!! I love that it is "kitty tested" and obviously passes the test!! Wonder what color of binding you'll be using?

A lovely scrappy trip!
