En Provence is complete!

En Provence is done! Wahooooo!

It was sent to the local quilt shop to be long arm quilted. It measures 108 inches square. It is a big ol' quilt and heavy. Years ago I tended to think of quilters as the tiny, gray haired grandmothers, basically my grandmother, now I recognize how strong those little ladies were to be making big heavy quilts. I admire their strength. And better understand why they hand quilted on frames. Wrestling this monster under my needle just to bind it was a struggle.

We've had gray skies so pictures are subdued. And the wind was blowing. It is Oklahoma after all :)

Thank you Bonnie Hunter for this mystery quilt! Go visit her Quiltville for free patterns, fun tutorials and great ideas!
