Made In Cherry Quilt Along Top Complete!

Finished the top last week!
 Checking fit on the intended bed.  I had been contemplating a pieced border.  Unnecessary.
 Trying to photo outside.  With help.
 It was windy, there was no way I could get it to lay flat.
Here is the backing.  I just love it.  There are definite bonuses to working on a Christmas Quilt in January/February.  Clearance sales on Christmas Fabric.  This is from Connecting Threads.  They have a green version, too.  I would buy it, but I have promised self to only buy fabric for specific projects.

Now, it won't get quilted real soon, as I have other projects that have to be completed and this is just a fun project.  I have been sketching some quilting ideas, though.

That's lovely, but wow, it's big! I'm planning on tackling this one at some point, and hadn't realised the scale. It'll look fantastic when you're done, I love the fabric for the back.
