Quilt Retreat Siggy Quilt Finished

It's only taken me a year to finish, but finally yesterday, I was able to get it quilted. I'm so pleased with how it turned out. This went from a random idea, where I bought yardage, to a full wall hanging. It's 48" square, so it's really big for a wall, but I'll put it in my studio. It'll remind me of all the awesome people I met while I was there. I quilted random stars in the meadering. I used Aurifil Red/White/Blue thread, so it's not as heavy of a quilting thread. I still have a ton of it left on the spool. I started the hand work today, so within the week I should be able to hang it up. It has a white backing fabric, so I'm thinking I'll use it for siggy's at other retreats.

I've never quilted anything in anything other than a solid color, let alone two different totally different colors.

You are so creative!! What a special quilt this is!!!
