. . . done . . .

. . . is a GREAT four-letter word . . .
. . . and this little project is 
quilted, bound, and on the wall . . .
. . . thanks to a super speedy/talented/amazing quilter . . .
{call me ~ i'll hook you up}
. . . she did a 
cross-hatch {she taught me that term} design 
in the hearts . . . 
. . . tiny stippling in the background areas . . .
. . . a chain of hearts in the frames . . .
. . . and a darling 
scrolly freehand flower design 
in the border . . .
{you should know that 
i dropped it off wednesday afternoon 
and picked it up saturday - super speedy!}
. . . here's a peek at the back . . .
. . . it might be hard to take it down 
when february is . . . 
. . . done . . .

I have said it before and I'll say it again... you are amazing! I love this quilt o' love. I love that it's so stinking cute that I had to whine for the pattern. I love that it is two words...1. fin - 2. ished. I love that you have a wonderful, nay perfect spot to display it. I hope that you are starting to get rid of that nasty illness and be.....as you said...done!

Absolutely gorgeous!!!! Awesome job, Steph! I seem to recall someone that likes to use red and white for their Christmas decor...maybe this can be a Dec-Feb quilt! Sure is beautiful and I bet it feels so good to have it finished! Yea for you!

Holy Cow Stephanie. It is amazing. It looks so cute on that wall too. I would have a hard time taking it down. I love it. Your fabric choices are so great and it is such a happy loving wall quilt. I am smiling!

Can I come see it in person? When my mom said she was done quilting it I called to see if I could come over to see it and she said that you had picked it up. I was so sad!!! Really.... I love it and it will now go on my list of 10,000 quilts I want to make.
