Tulips completed

Here is the completed tulip top. I quilted and sewed the binding on yesterday. I slept under it last night and did I sleep well! I am very happy to have a spring quilt. Here is the back of the quilt. I did finish the poem on the back. I think I should have positioned it a bit higher on the back, had more of the black floral on the bottom but it is what it is.
Here is the quilt on my bed. It certainly brightens the room and makes the room feel cheery.


Spiral has posted a picture of her completed top today, go over and check that out. Hers is really nice and springy also. I like her pastel background. I might (might) just have to try another. I am thinking of a smaller tulip, baby sized. We'll see, you know if I do it will be posted.
Have a good day. DD and BF are coming over for diner tonight. Swiss steak and mashed potatoes are the requested menu. Of course Mom will comply, there are just somethings I will always accommodate my children on and one the those things are making their favorite dinners.

This wins hands down as my favorite quilt.

Just want to let you know that I've deleted my blog. Long story... but my identity has been compromised. You can send me an e-mail if you want the long story.
