Vintage Moments (almost) complete

I accepted a guild challenge to finish one project this calendar year.  I selected my Vintage Moments which only needed to be quilted.  The challenge started in January, due in November.  Of course I started quilting late October!  I finished all the ditch quilting and even got the binding done.  I admitted to the coordinator that I would be adding more quilting, but she kindly let me stand up in front with my "finished" project. 

I don't know how I'm  going to lay this out for blocking.  It's too big to fit anywhere.  Suggestions?

A lot of the quilting does not show well in a photo, but here you
can see one of the triangles filled with a feather.

Outside border quilting. 
I had some lines in the center area so I continued that design in the border. 

The binding was attached by machine.  The piping is attached to the binding strip
which is then sewn to the back.  Bring the binding to the front and stitch between
the piping and binding.  I knew I did not have time to sew the binding my hand!
I'm excited to get this far.
Thanks for checking in.


  1. So glad you didn't have to do the walk of shame--I think your quilting came out beautifully. As far as blocking, I have no clue.

  2. Your quilt and quilting are wonderful. I don't know about the blocking either? By the way - you are a "no reply blogger". You left a message on my post and this is the only way I can thank you. It worked in my favor though since I was able to see your pretty quilt.
