let's sew wednesday

 hello! remember this post? well its finally finished!!!! as you can see from the top picture i hand sewed the to and from along with the year. my grandmother always said to sign your work and i don't always do it.
 i wanted the back to look as good as the front, so i carried over the front pattern to the back of the quilt. plus that gave me the option of using a patterned backing fabric. for some reason the wider fabrics are not always the prettiest fabrics.
 as you might remember, i used the disappering nine patch to make this beauty! and my friend leann was kind enough to quilt it for me on her long arm machine. one day i'm going to be brave and try and quilt on my machine. this is a full size quilt.
enjoy! lisa
