Pentaflora Finale

If you've been patiently waiting to see the final quilt, well here it is in all it's glory!  Pentaflora.  It took me about a year to hand applique (no wonder I do mostly machine now!).  

The quilting was designed to go over and under the applique and is filled with a variety of quilting patterns.  I had a ton of fun with it.  The judges may not have been totally pleased with it, but I am and that's what counts.  Right?

One rough spot in this project was the time I waited between marking the quilting and actually putting the layers together.  It hung on my wall for about a year and had to be remarked with my trusty blue water soluble pen since I couldn't see much of the lines (must be the humidity!).

All's well that ends well.  More pictures will be forthcoming once she's back from Utah.

I hope you get to quilt today!
