Done: Winter Doldrums Undone

So, finally! the current quilt is done.  Finished it this morning.  Although there are quite a few errors on the quilt, I like it.  I probably won't raw-edge applique again since my hand is not steady enough to stitch down the qpplique on the long-arm.  But, it was a fun quilt to make and I learned quite a few things that I can apply to future quilts.  Enjoy the photos.

Most of the quilt laid out on the floor of my living room.

This is so beautiful. The colors are right up my alley. And I have to admit to a little envy over your longarm. Someday I would like an HQ-16.

Thanks for linking your project on the 52 weeks post.

I love this quilt - it is just a gorgeous mix of colours and I also love the combination of the block and the applique! Well Done!
