Finally Finished My Quilt!

Well, it is done.  Finally!  The quilt I bought fabric for years ago and have had the pattern since 2009 is finally complete.

Here it is!

The fabric is from Moda and the line is called Aviary (a very old line that is impossible to find any trace of now).  I found the pattern in this magazine, Quilt and More, which is one of my favorite.  Can you see that the issue is from 2009?  Yep...that is how long I have been thinking about this design.  This magazine is only released quarterly and I usually pick up my copy at Hobby Lobby.

The quilt is now on my daughter's bed as the colors go very well in her room.  I did quilt it myself on my regular sewing machine with free motion quilting.  That was my biggest challenge as I had never done a quilt that big (it is throw sized).  I am not sure if I would quilt a larger was a lot of work to move around all of the fabric .

Yes, I have started another quilt (a pinwheel quilt this time) but this time, I think I will keep it.  I need something to snuggle up with on the couch as the weather gets cooler. =)
