The quilt top is finished!!

It has taken way too long, but the quilt top is finally all pieced together. Maryn and I have collaborated on this little project, and while she has done the lion's share of the work, it has been up to me to make final decisions, run back and forth to the quilting store, and basically keep the project rolling. We had a completely different idea about the border fabric than what we ended up using, but we like the way it is looking and hope that Sarah will be happy with this patchy little peace of her family history!

Next step... Sandwich the top, batting and backing and take it to Georganne's to quilt it on her long arm quilt machine. We hope to have this accomplished this weekend and then all that will be left is the binding... I don't like binding... Here's to hoping it gets finished by the wedding!
