Finish It Up Friday ~ Dream Big

The title of this panel feels very appropriate for this piece. It will hang in my Arizona house. This house has been a big dream of mine for a very long time!

It was the last thing I quilted on Friday before leaving. Here is the backing.

I decided to finish this with a facing instead of a binding.

I ended up with the center of the flower not laying quite flat, but blocking seemed to help.

I love the texture!

Now to get this hung up! Have a great day!

    Wow, wow, WOW Katy! This turned out fabulous. It will be stunning anywhere you hang it but somehow I think it belongs in your Arizona home. Just the tones and shades – you’ve highlighted all the best of this Dream Big. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

    fantastic quilting. here’s a thought i mentioned to someone else. put a sleeve on both top and bottom so it can be turned around – that way it doesn’t always try to droop the same way; heck, if you want, put a sleeve on all four sides.

    I absolutely love the way you quilted this one Katy! I’ve got a couple of these panels & have looked at many different ways they’ve been quilted. I definitely want to do one like this, it really makes the petals lovely. I’m enjoying watching your adventures in setting up your new home in Arizona, what a blessing to be able to be near your Arizona kids & grandkids.

    Wow! I’m always amazed how quilting takes these flower panels to new levels, and yours didn’t disappoint. Facing was a good call; this will look wonderful in your new home.
