Finished my "Pie in the sky" quilt

Yay! I just finished quilting my "Pie in the sky" quilt. I used a pantograph pattern called Effervescence
It's a large quilt, but with help from my son I managed to take a photo of the whole quilt. I'm really pleased with how the quilting looks, and even if I should have used a bit darker thread, I think it looks good. I used a Superior thread called King Tut, a cotton thread I like to use when quilting pantograph patterns. 

Some close up's of the quilt:



Now I will make some yards of binding and add to the quilt, and I will enjoy some hours with sewing down the binding by hand in the days ahead :o) I love hand sewing the binding, it's sort of relaxing work to do.

I hope everyone is having a nice Sunday. It's Mother's Day here in Norway, so there will be coffee and cake over here ;o) Happy Mother's Day to my Norwegian friends :o)

I love your new quilt! It is so colorful and yet not TOO colorful (if that makes sense). I love the pantograph you used for quilting. It goes well with the design of the quilt. Beautifully done! You should be very proud of yourself!
