Turning Twenty finished

I started this in March of 08. It hung in the shop unfinished until last week when I finally got brave enough to quilt it. Leah quilted Jennifer's Turning Twenty in this same pattern and I really liked it. I completed the binding this morning. My quilting is a bit wonky in some places but how do you improve if you don't try? Took me almost a year to talk myself into that one. It's not perfect but nothing is and I'll do better next time. Until then, start to finish, I made this!

Man! You have access to a long arm? You are so lucky! I love the quilt but I must admit I think it's a bit of a tease as well! I'd love to see more of the quilt! Lovely, Corinnea. Just lovely!
