School Quilt Final

As I started to put the sashing on; I had issues and so had to rip the stitches out!  Several times!

Here I had as much done as I could using the blocks that I had received.  I was waiting for many still.

After I got it back from Dubai; I hand sewed the label on.

Uki was helping me, of course!

I had to hand sew the sashing on to the Fiji block.  It turned out great!

Again, once the quilt was quilted and returned to me; I unfolded it to show those in the PTA and one of these roses went flying out!  I took it home and hand sewed the petals to the base fabric!

Here is the top half

The bottom half

Here it is all put together and quilted and Uki approved!!

She loved this quilt!

Here I am showing it off at the monthly guild meeting.

Finally, it was time for the big reveal at the school Carnival.  The men were hoisting it up.

Me with it at the school!

In its' final resting place in the school.

Thanks for going through this journey with me!  It was so very hard not to blog about it during the process!

Now I can show you what else I have been working on!
