Finished

The wall-hanging/memory quilt is done.

I just finished the binding tonight. I am so pleased with the final product. As a child, I helped my mom and grandmother cut and piece the quilt for my bed. I didn't do any of the quilting or binding, so this is a first for me.

Here is my first quilt. Finished size is approx 20"L X 15'H. The quilt is meant to signify various natural elements - sky, sun, grass, trees, water, air. These seem to be areas where the recipient most feels her lost child. The elemental portion was hand-quilted. The white "frame" was machine quilted.

Please excuse the poor photo quality. I was too eager to get the finished quilt photographed and proof posted!
