I have another finish!!!! Yeah!!!!

Sew, this has been a productive month for me.
I just finished my "Sail Away" quilt.

I embroidered waves under the boats and wales with medium blue embroidery thread.
I backed the quilt with Cuddle Chenille.
It is extremely soft and warm.
I quilted waves in the center and stippled in the border.
My quilting is not the best, but this is a very thick quilt and it took a lot of work.
I used my old Kenmore to quilt it.
I really love the finished product.
I hope my niece and great nephew love this quilt.
I designed it just for them.

Hugs
