elephants palm tree, and flamingos!

Here is what I did when I got home tonight-


I finished the last stitch tonight in the wonky village- the black sleeve about did me in! all that black on black stitching...binding, label, and sleeve-ugh. However, I am feeling quite pleased to have this goal accomplished. Robin Hill quilted this for me and we both had a fun time deciding on thread colors and bonus things to be quilted into it. I have a few close ups of what I mean about bonus items.
a palm tree,
elephants ...flamingos...

Wow, Cher, wow. This quilt turned out so wonderfully - what an excellent quilting job Robin did. I love those elephants. Congrats on finishing this marvelous quilt! Now what happens to it? Does it get to hang up on a wall in your house?
