Oh, my, what a lot of piecing and quilting you have done to make that doozy of a quilt! Congratulations on finishing a Bonnie Hunter Mystery.
I will assume it has an excellent label on the back documenting date, name of creator and place.
Wow congratulations on getting that done. It is beautiful. The closest I have ever come to making one of her quilts is trying to pull stash and scraps and realizing I would have to buy more fabric.
Lovely quilt, I'm sure you are glad to have it finished so you can enjoy it.

We drove to Colorado yesterday and I was appliquing my cubes to the background and made great progress. I went about a third of the way around the shape.
So, you’re reunited with your long arm?
I know! fortunately I have an expert in the family - DD has been advising me, also going to her physical therapy co-workers for suggestions. One suggested wearing a wrist brace at night when it flared up a couple of months ago. 2 nights later my index finger was much improved after weeks of pain. who would have thought a wrist brace would make a difference to my finger. That's why I was so concerned that it got worse again out of the blue. Several nights of machine sewing and it is back to normal-ish. still some pain across the back of my hand when typing - could be these 12 hour days at the computer -
impressive! congrats on finishing a Bonnie hunter mystery - definitely an accomplishment.
POV. Well, I just stood there with my cell phone and kept backing up until I had a fairly decent shot. I'm down to 5'9" but that's still tall so I had good angle.. LOL I've lost a bit of height with age.
I've also been known to stand on a stepladder for a better view. but I'm older now so I don't do that as often
I quilted the t-shirt quilt on Monday. Going back to New Mexico on Friday but I will be back in Colorado soon. Just have some loose ends to tie up.
What a humdinger of a quilt! Congratulations on getting it done. I know her mystery quits aren't that easy. I have followed along with her clues many of the gals doing it get confused when putting the units together. You did great.
let me know when you want me to send along my quilt top. And do you want me to send batting or would y ou rather pick it out?
