My masterpiece is done!!!!!!

For the last 18 months I have been working on a quilt called Ladies of the Sea for my father. I have mentioned it in an earlier blog, but now I can say it is finally done! The quilt started as a block-of-the-month last year and I had it done earlier this year. I then gave it to Debbie for quilting and she did a fantastic job in the borders and cornerstones. I took it home and did some free motion in the blocks. Finally I put individual labels on the backside which has a small description of each ship and now it is ready to go to the Morgan Hill Quilt Show. I'm so so so happy with it. It is beautiful. Both Debbie and April think I'm crazy to have done it and now that I look at it, I think they may be right! This will eventually go to my father after the show and I know he will enjoy it.

HI Eli--

I saw your gorgeous quilt at the South Valley Quilt show today. WOW!!! You did a great job -- it is absolutely beautiful.
I was hoping I would run in to you so we could say hi.
