I finally gave Luke his quilt this weekend. It would have been Thursday but that was the day he picked up his BMW wagon so I decided that he couldn't have the quilt until he could be properly excited about it. That may have been more for me than him. So without further delay I present to you the fruit of 6 months hard labor and stress...

Since I have had to keep this project in the dark, here are a few in progress photos.

Here is the quilt top finished and ironed out.

Spreading out the back to make the sandwich.

The sandwich about half way hand basted. Notice the exotic creature in the top left. Mmmm.

The zigs and zags being marked and quilted.

So that is all. My mom is giving me less than a year to start my next quilt. We'll see, it sure was a lot of work. Maybe next winter.
