Highlights Quilt Finished!

I have finished sewing down the binding and sewing on the label to the quilt that is known as the Highlights Quilt. It is so massive, 230 cms square massive to be exact, I struggled to get all of it in a photo. Had to take it up to the folks house and drape it over the pergola and even then I didn't get it all in. So above is the artistically hanging shot.....

And here it is hanging. I am missing a good 30cms from the photo as its drapped over the top, but its the best I could get and I'm sure you get the idea.

And here is the back.

And the label. It is our quilt, for our bed. After how many years I finally have a quilt I made on the bed! Started back here in April, finished in November. It is so nice to snuggle underneath. We are in a pokey little bedroom in this house so I won't post photos on the www of it on our bed just yet. ;)
