Monogram quilt finished!

I love getting projects completed.  This quilt has been delivered to its recipient and they are in love with it.  She said she doesn't want to use it so it doesn't get ruined!!  Ahhh...good news.  I encouraged them to have some snuggle time with it!   She may hang it on their wall!!
I love Monograms.  

All rolled up!

I've been thinking much these days about personalization...in our interactions, in our gift giving, at my work, etc.  Monograms seem to make something so special...people know it was meant and made for them.  I think as time goes by I will be making this quilt for other family members.
Butterflies for the backing...
This is a special quilt to me now as it is the first quilt I have quilted on my new long arm machine.  I'm so excited to have such a lovely piece of equipment to make my quilts (and other people's quilts) much more professional.

I stippled this quilt since it was so busy and tried a new thread to me called "Glide".  It has a lovely pearlized look to it and really added some "wow" to the quilting.  Too bad my photos don't really show this!

I've been working on some other practice quilts and will share those soon.  They need binding!!!  Can't wait to finally get all the quilt tops I've made over the past 5 years finally made into finished quilts.  :)
