Finished at last!  Several years ago I started making this quilt....after making a few blocks I got sidetracked and started working on something else.  The UFO sat there for several years.  One day about a year ago, Misti stopped by my house and I showed her the blocks.  Since she loved the pattern, I gave everything to her and said for her to go for it.  She called me excitedly today to tell me she had finished the quilt.  She made the rest of the blocks, finished the quilt, had it quilted, and she added the binding.  Done!  I had to rush over and take pictures.

 Above, Misti shows off her awesome quilt. I'm sorry but don't remember the name of the pattern and forgot to ask Misti the details..

 She does wonderful applique.

 Since she wanted the quilt long enough to cover her bed, she added these squares along the bottom.  I also wanted you to see the quilting.  That pumpkin is perfect.  Also take note of the binding.  Misti said she wanted all the colors in the binding, so she cut squares from all the fabrics in the quilt, sewed them together, pressed the seams open and made binding.  Wow!  What a task!  But I love it.

I can't remember which blocks I made.  I think maybe only about three.  I know Misti made this block above.
 Misti also had a jelly roll quilt to show me.  She said that this one is for when she and Ken (her husband) go camping.

 Misti shows us that she pieced the back of that quilt.

I really love the quilting on this one too.  Misti said that she always has her quilting done by Nancy at Aerie Quilting.  You can find her on line.

Thank you Misti for sharing this stunning quilt with us!
