And here it is...
I finally finished making the pieced border and sewed on all three borders in the past couple of days (the last one went on yesterday - Weds. the 22nd of May).
Making this quilt has been an amazing journey of trying to perfect my applique techniques and precision piecing. Lots of fun!
I was going to consider sending this quilt to Stovers for quilting as I've seen some wonderful work come out of their company - but their website is disabled and I'm wondering if they're still in business.
It would make me very sad to have to find another custom quilter for this one. For obvious reasons, an overall pattern or pantograph wouldn't work on this quilt at all. It needs custom work and I don't want to quilt it myself.
Any suggestions on an alternative to Stovers?
Edit: Hooray! Today I called Stovers and they are still there... they weren't even aware their website was down (*later edit*: and it is now back up again). I can still have them do my quilts! I have two in the pipe, ready to send to them to have them do before I decide what level of quilting I want on this one (they have custom and heirloom, and I'm not sure which one I want... they also have pantographs, but I KNOW I don't want that).
Anyway, didn't mean to worry anyone - Stovers is still there and quilting away!
