Wednesday WOW – May 9

This project is rapidly approaching finished.

P5090012I started on the outer border on this quilt today.  It’s a pieced border, so there is still some sewing to be done.  But it is getting there!

P5090003 And the big news is . . . the Kansas quilt is finished!  I took it in so we could hang it up and take photos.  I’m so pleased with the way this looks.  I got lots of compliments, too.  Always good for the ego!

I plan to put this into a couple of local quilt shows this summer.  Then I’m hoping I can send it to the AQS Show in Des Moines this fall. 

P5090004 Here is a close-up shot so you can see some of the quilting.  Lisa did an absolutely amazing job, didn’t she?  This will be the first quilt submitted to AQS for both of us.  Kind of nervous about that!
