Here it is!!

Here it is! The Judie Rothermel Web Sampler! I think I have kept the suspense long enough!!!! :0) I know many of you have been waiting to see this. The fabric line was called "Vicksburg". This is the quilt that Mary over at Quilt Hollow quilted for me! I think you may have to click on the pictures to see it better. I do my best, but I am not a very good photographer.
I had my hubbie and daughter hold up the quilt for this shot. I have the binding on, but still need to hand sew it down. That will be tonight's TV time project. That is, if my parents don't arrive tonight. They are arriving either tonight or tomorrow morning. While my husband and I are away in Hawaii my parents will housesit. It makes a nice get away for them also. :0)
This one I took after laying it on the floor. How do you take full length pictures of large quilts? What seems to be the best way to do that?

For those of you who are Jo Morton enthusiasts, there is a 5' charm swap going on!! I want to do this, but the timing may not be the best. Hmmm, I have some siggie blocks to do as well as visiting some blogs, packing, can I get these cut also? Anyway it is over at Dawn's blog called Spring Water Designs. Go check it out!!
Ah! A sneak peek of our Anniversary dinner! :0)
