Dancing to the oldies

Anyone else out there having 80's flashbacks while looking at this quilt? A friend of my sister made this quilt several years ago. She had it basted and I guess she thought that someday she would hand quilt it. Here it is 12 years later and now it is done.
I don't know if you can see the lace around the edge of the fan - but I nearly drove myself off the deep end this morning after it got caught under the hopping foot. Pain in the backside!

But now it is done and will be taken to my mom who will be putting the binding on for Tammy. I told her I wold have to charge $50 an hour to apply binding because of my great hatred of binding! Mom kindly agreed to do it for her!

Off to pack for the beach!

Wow those colours are sooo 80's! I had a bedroom in those colours in the height of Miami Vice. :o) good that it's done.

Boy, that has Eleanor Burns written all over it. I wonder if we are going to feel the same way about the quilts we are making, today? I like your copy-cat quilt! Very nice.

It looks very 80s-ish. It doesn't seem that long ago, but see how the fabrics have changed.
