Quilting again

I have finished my first handquilted Wholecloth. I wrote about it a few weeks back...I am very pleased with how it looks especially being my first one. I have called it 
Roses and Feathers, the designs are "Traditional North Country/ Durham designs and were arranged for me by Judy Leckie Australia. 
The edge is a knife edge finish again a first for me...I do like tis finish ..one does need to take time to achieve a good finish..
I have lots to learn ......
