A very BIG finish

I finally put the last stitches in this king~size quilt this morning. It had been too hot to sit with the quilt on my lap lately and I had to put sewing the bias binding off. The temperatures dropped drastically over the weekend and I was able to pick it back up again on Monday. It really gives a summer garden look to our bedroom. I am now going to concentrate on making some pretty stitched accent pillows to reflect the colors of the quilt. I started one over our vacation week and need to get back to it now that one more thing is crossed off my WIP list.

Heidi,
It is absolutely beautiful. I feel that I could jump in to the picture and be the most comfortable. The colors are so soothing in the quilt and how everything flows together in the room is so calming and peaceful. An absolutely stunning quilt and a perfect bedroom look. Hats off to you!!

What a beautiful quilt Heidi. The colours are so soft and pretty.
The whole room looks so inviting.
I love the picture of lace? that is hanging over the bed. Is that some of your handmade lace or some antique lace?

Your quilt is beautiful Heidi. I have always loved that look of just beautiful blocks of fabric simply quilted. Very elegant yet comfortable and cozy!

You've inspired me to get some piecing done! (And collect a few more charm packs!)

Once again you've created something, not only very beautiful but so useful too. Our temps dropped as well- what a shock. Now you can snuggle down under your wonderful quilt. It gives you lovely tranquil room warmth and stmosphere :>)
Hugs, Angela

Heidi, Your room looks so peaceful with the beautiful colours of the quilt and all the lovely accessories you have placed in the room. I love the collage of lace above the bed. You truly are a wonderful inspiration to us all. I am going to save even harder now so as to see your pretty home next year. Thank you for sharing, Hazel

I'm a little behind but am catching up! Your quilt is beyond gorgeous but then I expected no less from you! I was terribly glad to see the teddy bears in your bedroom as I was quite fearful that I was the only grown up with stuffed animals in her bedroom. LOL Congrats on the beautiful finish and what a sense of achievement you must feel.
