December Goal Accomplished

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.

Great going Sandy. I didn't realize that you sashed each piece of white on the backing. It looks great, too. I think you nephew will love this quilt.

The LOZ quilt is wonderful. Both of my grown sons would proudly hang that quilt. They are true gamers like your nephew. Beatiful work Sandy!
