Infinity Finished!

I finally have a finish, Infinity has been quilted! I decided to try a new long arm quilter and Colleen has done a wonderful job.

The color in the picture isn't true. It should look more red than pink/maroon.

The feathers she quilted in the bargello section are wonderful, they look like butterfly wings. 

Here is a close up view.


A view of the black background and the outside border.
You can see the feathers on the back side, she switched the thread on the back, this side is beautiful too!

The finished wallhanging measures 59" by 57". She'll hang on a wall in our bedroom as soon as I get someone to put the hanger up.
I pieced the flimsy in December. You can read the details here and here, including the pattern and the designer.

Linking WIPs On Wednesday, Let's Bee Social,  Needle & Thread Thursday, Peacock Party, TGIFF!, Finished Or Not Friday, Show Off Saturday

Gretchen your Bargello quilted is stunning. They are such rewarding quilt patterns to sew. Your longarm quilter did an amazing job, quilting the quilt, especially with all those pieces. Not easy to do. Thank you for sharing.
