Hello Everyone,

So the quilt that I began making for my son last year for his Christmas present in 2016, is now almost complete!  The goal was to have it complete for Christmas, 2017.  But I didn't quite make it.  But in my defense the top is done 3 days after Christmas!

I am very pleased with how it turned out.  If you want to know the details on the block and pattern read my blog post here.  I made it with a slight diversion from the pattern and added my own sashing and cornerstones.  It is even Quilt Inspector Number One and Two approved!!

Once those were added a 10" border on all 4 sides. HUGE to say the least through my machine....  The reason behind the 10" borders is because I want this to be a BIG spread.  The drop has to be long, plus a nice pillow tuck too.  My son is 6 foot 3 and built like a football player, so this needs to be large!!

Anyway, I love how this has turned out thus far and had to preview it on my bed.  Now to get the backing made and get it on the long arm. It will get an edge to edge quilting pattern on it to finish it up.  I am certainly on the home stretch now!

So what do you think?? I love it.

Oh and don't forget to enter my giveaway going on here.

Until Next Time...
