My free motion quilting has improved greatly since last fall and this came together much easier and with very few stitching glitches. I'm very pleased with how it turned out. I tried to take pictures of the various squares to show the quilting but the lighting wasn't quilt right and I couldn't get enough contrast between the fabric and the quilting thread. So I only have two pictures where you can see some of the details.
So now I just have to sew on the binding and pull through all the lose threads the the quilt will be finished. So that will be work for this coming weekend and then I will be able to deliver this quilt to Anna next week. I'm sure she will like it.

I didn't get as much done today because it was a lovely spring day and I decided to take some time out and go out and enjoy the weather. Where I live there is a wonderful ravine and parkland area and the wooded area was filled with blooming trilliums. It's great to see the spring flowers after such a cold long winter.
The tulips trees in our neighbourhood are also in bloom and they make such a pretty show I had to take some pictures of them as well.
