The Ladies Are Done

The Ladies Diary Quilt is FINALLY done!

I started it in June 2013 after falling in love with the fabric and design.
By September 2013 I had the top all put together.


It was quilted (by Quilted Works) in October 2013.


And here it is May 2015 and I finally completed the binding.
I'm so excited to get this sweet quilt TOTALLY finished!

I needed a fence high enough to accommodate this big quilt, so we hung it on a baseball field fence.


I love everything about it!




A little help from the hubby...


...who was trying to make shadow birds on my quilt.
Once a little boy, always a little boy. Love him!


I can now check this off my nonexistent list of things that need to be done. Yay!

  4. Good job getting it completed! Men are just oversized little boys. And little boys are noise with dirt, the hubby is just a larger version.

  7. I remember this pretty quilt ! I also remember thinking it was so you.....but I see Ron recognized that it wasn't. It needed something just a little creepy in it (because you like creepy things) so he must have been trying to put a creepy blackbird in it ! Way to help your wife out RON !
