Pinwheel quilt finished at last!

 
I finished quilting and binding my water-lilies pinwheel quilt this week! It took almost 2 years for me to finish this quilt. I hand-quilted the centre of the quilt and the outer border I machine quilted. It is the first one of my quilts that I have quilted myself. The finished quilt is 83" x 83".
I used a Kaffe Fassett print, bekah in blue, for the back of the quilt. I used another Kaffe Fasset print, mirage stripe in blue, for the binding.
Here is another shot of the quilt on our bed. Unfortunately it has been raining so I can't take a photo of the whole quilt outside. Here is the link to the whole finished quilt top. It feels good to get such a big project finished! Yay!

Congratulations to finished your stunning quilt. I don't think two years is very long, especially since it's a huge quilt. What comes next?

This quilt is outstanding! Of course nothing makes me happier than lots of triangles in a quilt!

The colors and the pinwheels are exceptional! You see movement all over this quilt, it was worth the time it took to finish. I like your choice of the blue floral for your border/sash, it adds so much to the overall flow. It is beautiful, definitely a favorite!
