I'm finished!!!!

I had to pull an all nighter - which I haven't done since college - but I finished my Scraps to Treasures Challenge quilt.  I can easily say that this quilt has more quilting on it then any other I've done.  I wanted to share a few pictures of it with you before I carry my tired and sore body back to bed.



The challenge was to use at least a 2" square of fabric from each of about 120 different 6" square fabrics we received from participants.  We were allowed to add a certain amount of extra fabric based on complicated calculations.  It also had to be a minimum of 36" x 48" and finished by the time our host awoke this morning.  (We had to email her our pictures.)  Tomorrow the HGTV Quilting & Needlework Forum will have a show of the quilts by all the participants (around 45).  You should stop by and check it out.


I called my quilt "Deconstructed".  Pretty obvious why, huh?


Here's another close up of the quilting on the floor boards and baseboard.  The wall isn't crooked like it appears; that's just from my dear husband holding up.  So leave a comment and let me know what you think...
