Rowing For The WIN!!!

 So I got my rows all done...Bob was helping me with the layout.
 I always have a hard time making things look good together, when they are all different. It was even harder this year because the rows were available in different sizes.

 I think I got it worked out. What do you think Bob?
 SO I went outside and used my garage door spray basting wall! LOL! I pieced the backing out of  fabric I got while I was on vacation.
 Love the spray baste! It works so well! I just used masking tape to hole the backing smooth, then sprayed and added the batting, then one more spray and added the top and TA-DA quilt sandwich is done!
 Looks good hanging there doesn't it!
 I do like how it turned out.
 Here it is all done! I went outside and pinned it to my clothesline-I just got it last weekend at a yard sale for only $3!!!
 The sun is pretty bright....
 But you can see the Amana block with the OOM-PAH! THe block below that is the one from over in Ankeny. Quilters Cupboard had this block for their row, but I just couldn't manage to work it out so I changed it to
a night time look!
I really like how it came out!The top block with the hearts and the bottom block are the ones from Minnesota.

 And here's the backside....
 And here's what I won when I took the finished quilt in to the nice folks at Heritage Designs over in Amana.
They are also displaying my quilt in their shop!!!!!! I'm so excited!!!!

You should be excited! So glad you won. I love how you changed the farm scene and the background fabric. I am very impressed. My craft room is done now and my goal is to finish unfinished projects and get caught up. We will see how long that takes!
