Ready for quilting! Woot!

It's been a long time coming, but I finally finished piecing the back of my Jubilee!  Woot!

The front was finished in record time, but I agonized over the back for nearly a year and a half!  Deciding to enter it into the Vermont Quilt Festival was the push I needed to figure it out!  And I'm so happy with it now!

The Front.....

and the Back.....

I love how the back turned out.  The orange section with the milk in it is 'made fabric' and was a total blast to put together.  And I'm loving the wavy line between the two sections.

My plan is to embroider the story of the quilt along the wavy line in the orange section with white floss (in tiny little letters!).  It will become the label for the quilt!

Now I just need to get busy with the quilting (which I haven't decided on yet!)!  LOL

Two down, one to go

Today I hit a milestone, two spools of quilting thread in my Jubilee quilt.
I should have known it would take a lot,
but even for me, this is a lot of hand quilting.
To read my complete post, see
I'm still on target to finish this, it's only taken me two years!!!
Thanks for stopping by,
