An Ending and a New Beginning

I spent yesterday and today sewing on a binding so I have come to the end of making a quilt.
I first saw this pattern when Corliss, Threadbear quiltshop, released it at the quiltshow in Melbourne. I have also seen a picture of the original quilt that she designed this one from. I have changed the bottom border slightly to suit me but apart from a leaf missing here and there I have copied the pattern.
Pam Hammer from Threadshed quilting, quilted it for me beautifully, she knows I like my quilts lightly quilted so they are still soft and cuddly. It will now get washed to give it the more wrinkled look I like.

This is my Civil War Bride's Quilt.
A quilt with a new beginning. This one is going on my bed.
