Woo hoo, the Green Brick Road is stippled!!!

It's done, it's done! We just ran out to take a picture of it. My mom has been working on making all of my bindings today. Once she's done she'll cut the excess batting away and put the binding on for me. I'll take close ups and such once it's complete.

It took just about 500 yards of thread for the top. I just made it with the thread. I'm not even sure if there would be enough to topstitch the binding with!! It took 4 prewound white bobbins for the back. Quilted in around 3 hours.

Here's what the spool looked like when I started (except that it was Green!) and here's what is about cutting it close!!

Wow, I bet you are soooo tired. I love the green, it looks so bright. You are like a marathon quilter.
