69 Hours and counting

Finally, after 2 weeks of quilting like a mad-man, I am on the bottom border.  It is coming along.  It took about 4-5 hours to get this much done today (it is a 5" space).  It's hard to get excited about the remaining 3 borders that need quilting when one takes this much time!
 The quilt will come off the frame at the end of the week, done or not.  I know it will still be incomplete, but I should have all 4 borders finished by then.  None of the deep pink has been stitched yet.  It's time to get going on some client work :-)

The border is spectacularly beautiful! You are sof gifted! Thank you for sharing! And btw even if it is time consuming it might be helpful to know that I think there are few in the world who could do the work you are doing...ever!

No no no! Don't take it off until you are finished. It is so beautiful! Almost like a stained glass window in thread. Just gorgeous.
