I will be e-mailing you shortly! (Sorry I still can't figure out how to get the thingy on my blog)
If you guys enjoyed that giveaway maybe you should come back, I dunno, around Monday or so and see what I've got going on *wink wink* (hint hint)!!!!!!
But enough with that! I finally got some pics taken of my FINISHED NIGHTSHADE QUILT! YAY!!!!! You wanna see it? I know ya do!
 Here it is in all it's crumpled glory!!!
And here is the back!
I've got some non crumpled pics, hang on!
I know the pics are a little blury, but I think if you click on them it will take you to my Flickr photostream where you can see them a bit better. All I have to take pics with right now is my iphone...until Christmas that is!!! :)
I just love it!
Here is an up close of the quilting. After I had to spend HOURS beyond HOURS ripping out those Stippling stitches (cuz I broke 10 needles, remember?) I decided to do wavy lines with my walking foot. I think it turned out pretty decent, and it crinkled up soooo pretty!
I did an almost improv style backing to it with the leftover scraps from piecing the top. I LOVE the backing!!!!!
Another up close....
See all that crinkly goodness?
I can't get over it! I just love this quilt. I really do wish I could keep it! But oh well, gotta do what I gotta do I guess. I just hope I did Miss Tula Pink proud! She designed some amazing fabric for this line!

Quilt Stats: Size is roughly 72" x 84" give or take an inch or 2
Fabric: Tula Pink, Nightshade and Kona Coal and Kona Snow
Pieced and Quilted on my home machine
~Hope y'all are having a great day!~

Love that quilt! I've seen that fabric around and thought of grabbing some but didn't know what I'd make with it. Your quilt is perfect!
