Finished My Modern Quilt

Whew, after 2 years of hand stitching and designing, I finally finished my first ever modern quilt.

The fabric is mostly my hand dyed cottons with a bit of Kona commercial in the borders.
I have never done so many straight lines on a quilt in my life.   I think this quilt needed it though.

I am linking up with Leah Day at her Free Motion Quilting blog.  You can go and check out other UFO's that are there.
