Before it leaves town...

Here is the finished product - Chesapeake Blues

This is a close-up of the quilting so that you can see how pretty the threads were.

I used smoke monofilament to do the FM quilting on the border. I loosely outlined the coral and kelp shapes just to give the border some texture. All the rest of the quilting was done with the walking foot. I really love this quilt. I have an idea for another one but I need to get some WIP under control before I start yet another project.

Why is it so easy to get started and so difficult to finish?
