Angela ~ Journey Through Time Quilt Update

I can see the end in sight!

This is the top, almost done, laying on my Mom's king size bed.  Looks like she will get to use it as it is so huge.
The back showing how I used the extra squares.  The orange outlined area on the left is the part that still needs quilting.  It's really almost done!
Thought I would show you some closeups.  I love angels and this is a piece of what used to be a tablecloth I made.
I used to make sock bunnies...lots of them...like over 300 of them...until they stopped making the socks I used...so this bunny is in remembrance.  I really like the blue floral at the bottom too, I had a favorite dress once that was similar fabric.
I love kitties, so kitty angels are perfect.
This batik fish is just too cool.
Another angel in my favorite colors.
Those novelty prints from the 50's & 60's are always so cute and happy.
The snowflakes remind me of MI winters, the psychedelic swirl is like some of the music I used to listen to and the colored squares remind me of the colors in our kitchen when I was a kid.
A pumpkin for my favorite season of Autumn.
Love the batik tree branches and the regal sun.
Purple chrysanthemum, my favorite color and my birth month flower.
The cute elephant is for Nana, she liked elephants.

I love it, and especially all the pieces that have special meaning. Great job, and I'm in awe of your hand quilting that big quilt!

Thank you for the close-up pics of fabrics. It's good to see them in detail, and what lovely memories you are including. When I first saw your coloured in chart of this quilt, at the beginning of the year, I had no idea it was going to turn out this big, and this gorgeous. Job well done so far Angela.

It's so big I think Mom & Dad will get to use it on their king size bed! It's a bit large for me as I sleep in a recliner for my back.
