it is done::
quite a long, long time coming. but all it took in the end was some new fabric and another pattern and a dream of making a quilt for each of the girls before summer is up. here's hoping they'll at least be unwrapping them during the holidays. more news on that project to come, and hopefully it won't span nearly two years like this one. i'm going to do less pinning this time. that should help.
the long arm quilting was done locally by terry of in stitches. you can find her here. she does a wonderfully beautiful job and lets you shop around for whatever pantograph your heart desires. i love her.
