Shabby Roses Quilt is done!!!

Well, this quilt has been in the making for a while.

I started making the blocks in August 2009,
and finally finished it yesterday April 4th, 2012.

The blocks were designed by Jenny of Elephantz.
It was originally a free BOM.
It's no longer available for free, but you can purchase it on her website.

I changed the setting of the blocks.
I wanted a different look then the one Jenny had designed.

My quilt is 43 inches wide by 40 inches long.
All the blocks are hand embroidered and hand appliqued.
I used fusible web to applique my shapes.
The quilt was machine quilted by me.
I used my old Kenmore sewing machine to quilt it. 
The binding is all done by machine.

I washed it yesterday and now it is so soft and crinkly.
Just the way I love it.
I put a sleeve on the back, so now it is ready to hang.

I'm keeping this one.
I've had a few requested or hints from a few people who wanted it.
But, this one is all mine.
I just love it!!!

I hope you like it too.

Since I have to work all weekend,
I will wish you all a very Happy Easter!!!
