Ending the year with another "Finish" feels good. It feels even better knowing I have kept a promise to my nephew, Josh. He asked me a little over a year ago to make a wall-hanging based on the 1980's video game, The Legend of Zelda. Last month it was all basted and ready to go.
I made it my "Lovely Year of Finishes" goal for December to complete the quilting and to get the binding on it. So I set to work -- quilting!
Here are some close-ups of the quilting from the back --
I set to work again -- binding!
This is one of the quilts that actually looks just as good from the back as it does from the front. It almost looks like a second quilt.
So, now that it's finished I need to figure out when to get to St. Louis to give it to Josh. I think it should be sooner rather than later. He seems pretty happy with the photos, but I bet he's ready to see the real thing and hang it in his home.
I am linking up to Fiber of All Sorts for their December Finishes Party. I was Goal #20 at the beginning of the month.
