The quilt Carolyn made for me is now quilted

I'm so pleased with how the quilt turned out that my dear friend, CarolynN, made for me.  I quilted this beautiful Shoo Fly quilt using a pantograph with leaves and flowers.  It goes so well with the Thimbleberries fabric in this lovely quilt.  Thanks again Carolyn; I just love this quilt.  I'm happy it's finished.  I think it took me about 2 years to finally get brave enough to try quilting it and only a little over 4 hours to actually do the quilting - I should have just jumped in sooner and gotten it quilted.  Oh well, it's done now and I can bind it and take it up to our mountain home to snuggle with on cool evenings.  Here's a picture of my Shoo Fly quilt and also a close-up of the quilting.
