Another look at my Whig Rose

Well the holidays have come to an end and once again I am still not finished with my Whig Rose quilt. But I have made great progress. So much so that I am not going to put it away and instead am going to try to push this one to the finish line. Thanks for all the encouragement the last time I posted About this quilt. The fact that it has inspired so many of you to comment has given me the extra incentive needed to keep going. It is almost all quilted within the vine border so now all that is left is the area on the outside of the vine and I am hoping that goes quickly. Wouldn't this finish be a great start to 2013!

Oh Heather, you have made great progress on this quilt. I love this style of whig rose with the tulip & the roses branching off the main flower. Hope you can make time to get this finished--it is so close--it will be lovely. Good Luck and keep us informed on it!!! Judy

Just about there, borders can go quicker than you think so you're on the home stretch. Your quilt makes me want to dig out my pattern.
