Oh Happy Day!
Gardens of Rock is finally finished and has been bound and hung. "Bound and hung"! That sounds terrible. But you quilters get the lingo.
If you haven't been following my blog, or just gave up waiting for me to get this quilt done, this is my original design with each block, or record, inspired by a favorite rock song, all from the '60's and '70's. You can try to guess each song title or look back at previous posts.
Outstanding machine quilting was done by Ann Becker. Kudos to her and many thanks. Close up shots of her work are below.

By the way, if you really examine my full quilt photo, you'll notice a shadow in the upper left corner. I take my photos outdoors, and this time of year there are few moments where the sun is just right, shining between the enormous trees in our yard. I will be taking more photos as this one would not be "Paducah entry worthy", referring to my ultimate goal of entering it in the AQS Paducah, KY show this spring and later, other shows. Entry deadline for Paducah is December 4! Plenty of time....
A new quilt which I plan to call "Happy" is in the works. No, this time it is not named after the song.
