I am so glad the top is done! I have been babysitting a lot lately, and my oldest daughter is home from college until grad school and her job start in August, so I have not had a lot of sewing time. And honestly I am so tired of this quilt I just haven't been able to focus on it for extended amounts of time.

So YAY!! It's DONE!!

Oh, cat. This is fantastic. My husband was nearly speachless when he saw it. He loved it. I adore it.

I am a Quilter at heart. I love to play with fabrics, patterns and colors. Recently I have discovered I enjoy doing applique. I love making pictures. Using a sewing machine is much easier than counted cross stitch or oil painting for me. I enjoy landscape quilting as well. I am working on my first applique project in the spring of 2014.

Cat that is absolutely adorable!! I love how colorful it is!!

Can you tell me where you found the white confetti material you used in the background. I have been looking for that for sometime now but can only find dots not confetti.

I believe this is the most beautiful quilt I have ever seen. Hands down. I just want to look at it and for a long time. Congrats! I'd pick your masterpiece up off the floor if it were my house. Now, there's a thought. Come visit and we'll find a perfect place for it here.

What a great quilt top -- I love all the color and your pieced border.

Do you have a plan for the quilting?

Really nice design and mix of fabrics. Can't wait to see it when it is quilted. What will go on the back?
