Topped off

I can't believe that just a week ago I was shopping for fabric for my MIL's quilt.  Tonight I finished piecing the quilt top.  Crazy!  It's amazing how fast a quilt can come together when the blocks are 17" across.  The person who posted the tutorial also commented on how fast it can be completed. 

I'm not posting a picture yet because it's pretty big, and I need to find a good place to hang it up to get a photo.  I think I'm going to take a break from it before I quilt it...I want to see if I can do free motion quilting with my machine.  It's not designed for that, but I heard you can tape an old credit card with a hole in it over the feed dogs and that might work.  We'll see.  But I definitely want to practice on some other things before I try her quilt.
