A major accomplishment!

 I feel great about this one.  Gary and I picked out the fabric for our bedspread from Material Girl's in Salt Lake City over a year ago.  It's really been a long process to get it done....but I'm so happy to say it's finally on our bed.  It's a King size, so it was a lot of machine quilting for sure.
 I need to make some more matching pillows.  I think I might even make pillowcases out of some of the leftover fabric.  But for now....just happy to have it on the bed.  I really love the colors and the variety of fabrics.  I even used a piece of corduroy.  It's a cute polka dot and matched perfectly.
I did an easy quilting pattern.  My dream is to have a machine with a longer neck so I can do bigger patterns.  But I'm tickled with the way it turned out.  It really looks amazing.  I love walking into my bedroom and seeing it.  Makes the room complete.  Finally.  (I'm done patting myself on the back now. Ha ha!)
