Finis. Finito. Terminado.Fertig. Finished.

Yes.  I did it!  I finished the quilt!  Now THIS is when I wish I could download photos to my laptop. 

It's a little after midnight, and I had no supper tonight, so when I get up in the morning I'm sure I'll be starved.  I sent DD#1 photos of the quilt with my phone when it only had two of the borders on it, and she sent me a text back that she thinks it looks awesome.  Be still my heart!

I'll be going to her house after work tomorrow.  Then DD#1, her husband and I head to Augusta.  DD#1 and DD#2 both turn 34 years old tomorrow.  That's why I was trying so hard to get this quilt top completed.  I'm hoping DD#1's husband will drive tomorrow.  I'll be in the back seat trimming loose threads from the back of the quilt.  Am I the only one that has all those threads that need to be trimmed?  I don't ever hear any quilters talking about trimming them.  So I was just curious.  I always wonder what makes some fabrics have more dangly threads than others.  Is it because it wasn't cut on the grain? 

Gotta scoot.  I still haven't packed!  And I need to get showered.  It's almost 1:00 a.m., and my workday starts at 6:00.  Ah...brings back memories of my youth.   

No internet connectivity in Augusta.  I'm gonna miss you.  All 10 of you.  Smile.

Have a great weekend!

OH I wish you could show us the quilt. Hope you manage to download it soon.
I don't worry about threads at the back as they just get put away in the layers.

Enjoy your trip away.
