Finished Mom’s Quilt and Gayle’s Yummy Fabric

I finished the quilting on Mom’s quilt yesterday.  I cannot get a good pic of the whole quilt, without taking it outside, and it’s been too windy.  So, after I get it bound and delivered to Mom’s, I will probably get some better pics on her bed.  I am really pleased with how it turned out, if I say so myself.  I’m not used to feeling that way:-).  The only part I’m not sure I really like is the quilting on the outside border, but I was trying to kinda of match the flowing viney pattern in the fabric. Border and cornerstone:
