The Quilting's Done!

This is "Mealtime Mantra" right off the rails... the quilting is complete! I like this photo with the sun streaming through the surface and and exposing a glimpse of the colorful patchwork backing. Here is a photo collage of the front and back, draped over the sofa:and a detail of the quilting:I'm happy that this one is, at long last, ready for binding and installation on the wall in our breakfast area. I'll bet my Mom is happy, too; her beautiful Bowtie is now loaded on Sundance and ready for quilting as soon as I get her threaded up and the pantograph spread out!
Life is Good!

Love it! It's almost a shame to put that beautiful back up against the wall where it won't be seen!

Fun quilt! Mason and the other grands will get a big kick out of this one :)

P.S. The editor in me noticed you're missing an "L" from the quilt's name in this post. Just sayin' !
