Did you hear it ?

Oh you must have heard it ,heard what you say , well the screams of delight when I put the last stitch in this quilt , I can't believe you didn't hear it I was so overwhelmed with joy ! This has been a long time coming , a very long time , this quilt was a ton of work so it is with much relief to say it is finished but alas I still do need to add that label , you know how the quilt police get a little angry when you don't add a label and I really don't want trouble so that is on my list of things to do . So what quilt am I talking about , why the Mystery Quilt that I took part in and the biggest mystery of all is why I did it , just kidding , it was a lot of work but it was worth it , really , no kidding .Ok enough blabbering ,I'll show you the quilt , I know you will recognize it because it has been shown in  various stages of completion for months ,yikes.
 I wouldn't win any awards for photo taking here but it was the best angle I could get to show the quilt so won't you raise your glasses and cheer with me .Thanks for stopping by and have yourself a wonderful day !!
 hugs Sheila

  5. Sew that's what I heard ..... looks great .... I think you can sleep under it with out the label for a little while you know until the right label comes along....Do you save any fabric with the quilt for repairs in the future.I have made a small fabric envelope and put patches inside and stitched this to the back side of the quilt. I have done this for the quilts that I have giving for auctions just because you do not know how they will be treated.
    Enjoy your cuddle under your wonderful quilt
    in stitches and hugs
