Drayton Hall - revisited...

...After 4 years of what seemed like endless English Paper Piecing the diamonds, traveling with this project for literally thousands of miles - as far away as our trips to the car; in the rv; at retreats; guild meetings; stitching with friends; doctor's waiting room; by the fire....

And joining everything together was like rubbing your head and patting your tummy at the same time...

And then turning it over to my nearby long arm quilter to add her finishing touches...

And the next to the last step of adding binding...

And adding the label...
(Think I will make a new one though)
Dancin' on the ceiling...oh boy, what a feeling!

And because I have not joined in awhile, doing Lori's QAL over at Humble Quilts .....
Feels good to be returning to the sewing room more frequently and tackling some UFO's with a dash of something new.
Happy stitching everyone!


  1. Wow, what a glorious finish! It is truly breathtaking and worthy of a special place in any quilt show in the country. Love your quilt along fabric choices too. I've been holding off on choosing my step 2 fabrics until I see the final layout. I suppose that's cheating but I want to love the finished piece!

  2. Now that is worth celebrating!! Just beautiful!

  3. That turned out beautiful. It was well worth the wait. Thank you for sharing. It DOES feel good getting a UFO done, doesn't it?

  4. OH, what a feeling. Drayton Hall is absolutely gorgeous. What a beautiful finish. It definitely is a time to celebrate.

  5. I'd be dancing on the ceiling too - it looks fabulous!

  6. Beautiful finish, and I love your label.
    Enjoy every stitch!

  7. Oh my, what a beautiful finish! Love the label! Did you draw that wonderful scene? Glad to hear you have joined in Lori's SAL :) Looking forward to tomorrow.

  8. Fantastic. What a beautiful quilt. I love how it turned out, and Lori's QAL sure has a cute outcome. I'm thinking of creating one in reds for xmas. Have a great day!

  9. Wow, Pat that is gorgeous! What a Labour of Love and testament to perseverance!
