Well, everyone, I don't like to revisit projects if at all possible, and you have all seen the giant quilt before, so why again you ask. It has been professionally quilted, and is now bound, ready for it's ultimate purpose. I will only show you small snippets of the quilt this time so you can see the beautiful all-over quilting pattern. Actually, the back of the quilt isn't half bad - I'm thrilled with it actually.
Thankfully, I had just enough of the beige toned star fabric for a nice width binding. This quilt is now going to be a gift to one of our members whose home was inundated by flood water during the January floods.
My main purpose for posting this is to publicly thank the lady who did the quilting. She was most generous with her time, and did this for our group free of charge, which I might add was a considerable saving to us. Thank you so much Kathy!!

We are hoping to present this quilt tomorrow at our monthly get together. I cannot thank Kathy Adams enough for turning this hatched and patched quilt top into something so nice. The straight line design she used is just beautiful. I feel it will be a tangible reminder of the friendship that endures between the ladies in our group.
