Mega Quilt...

Yay! All the topstitching is finally done, that really took forever... Here is some more detail:

I stitched on both sides of all the seams (so both vertically and horizontally) plus I crossed over the diagonal in every square. I decided to do all the topstitching without the backing in place. With the size of this quilt I just wouldn't have been able to fit all the fabric throught the sewing machine's arm.
Now I have to wait until someone of the family is home to assist me with placing the backing over the quilt so that I can sew it in place. Think comforter style, so no border.
I'm liking it a lot and can't wait to actually place it on our bed!

On to other news: the curly frame and fabulous mirrors have been hung! The curly frame is now adorning our upstairs master's restroom and it looks just lovely there. Still a bit lonely so we'll have to find some other items for that little space...
The wall in M.s room is actually quite a bright turquoisy-blue, but somehow the photo turned it into something grey. Don't know how that happened. The mysteries of photography I suppose...
