It turned out really beautifully. The quilting was lovely and I'm really proud of the piecing I was able to accomplish.
I even added a quilt label AND the pièce de résistance was a photo of all the family members pieced together via photoshop, printed onto fabric courtesy of bubblejet and then hand-sewn onto the back.
My 'stitch happens' moment on this quilt was when hurriedly adding the binding I had right sides together but a little twisted. Luckily it was only a few stitches to rip out and try again. Whew.
