Diane at the quilt shop PROMISED me it would be done this week, but over the weekend I was starting to get a little anxious. The last time I had something professionally quilted (at a different shop, now out of business) it took months longer than they originally told me. So this morning I was playing this little mind game with myself about how long into the week I should wait to call and check the progress. Then at 9:26 am the phone rang, and it was Diane calling to tell me it was ready! I flew out to Katy (LOVE that Westpark Tollway!) and picked it up. I think it came out beautifully. I was changing the sheets today anyway, so I put it on our bed just to see how it would look.Here you can see the striped backing.
You can see the details of the quilting better here.
And here is the embroidery detail.
I am so relieved that it is done...one less thing to stress about. Now I have to pick up my skirt from the tailor...
