WIP Sunday: Sister's Birthday Edition

So really I don't have anything I can share on WIP Sunday and I know, it is Monday! LOL I didn't have time yesterday to post as I was bustling around trying to get the binding sewn on the giant Birthday quilt! I ended up heading over to a friends with the quilt and a couple of my dear friends grabbed a needle and thread and helped me sew. I wouldn't have gotten it finished if it weren't for them! So a HUGE thank you to my quilty girls!

I didn't get very good pictures as I was in a hurry to wrap it up and get to the party. I'll take a few better photos later when it is on my sisters new bed, but for now I can share a couple of photos.
Tumbling Bright Blossoms
The pattern is the shop hop quilt from this year. I bought strips at 5 different shops and the finishing kit at one shop that came with the extra colored fabric, print, and pattern. I then bought the backing fabric and set to work. It is called the tumbling bright blossoms quilt. This thing is HUGE! Only my third quilt and it had so many pieces. I agonized over getting everything just right and it turned out wonderful. It is 81 inches by 100 inches.
Here is the 10th Birthday girl with her quilt. She loved it and can't wait to put it on her new bed.
Birthday Girl
I had it long arm quilted by a wonderful local quilter. I'll have to get a close up of the great quilting too.

Anyway, that is how I spent my WIP Sunday!
