Hooray!

Alabama Escargot is quilted.

I had some thread breakage: got to quilt three passes twice. I have decided that when I find the thread broken it is another opportunity to practice. LOL



Here is the backing with the quilted label.






And a couple of close ups.











Anyway, I took this off the frame this afternoon and then cut the strips for the binding. I plan to sew the binding on tomorrow and then I will pack it away for a week. We will get taking a trip next month and I am taking this quilt with me as my “handwork” project. I know it is a little big but I don’t do any other handwork and I need something to keep me busy on the drive and during the evenings while visiting. I will post pictures of it when it is all completed.
