Arcadia Avenue DONE!!!

No automatic alt text available.

I still can't really believe! Arcadia Avenue is finally done! It was a long haul but such a nice feeling to know that's it's finally all quilted! I knew it would be quite the project when I started but I had no idea it would take me this long.

I quilted parallel lines in the triangles along the edge of the quilt..I chalked a line down the middle as my own only marking. I quilted one inch away from the seam line and changed direction at the chalk line. Easy and fast!

Here's the quilt before I trimmed off the excess batting and backing. It looks so much better afterwards. Who cares?! It's done!!!!!

  2. Congratulations, Rosemary! What a beautiful quilt! I know you have lots of time invested in it, especially when you include the paper piecing, but it is so worth it when you see the finished product.
