finished - after 3 years - will you vote for me?

Friends: After 3 years, I finally finished my Roseville Album. Well to be honest, I still need to finish the hand quilting on the very last, bottom block. But I am calling this a victory.

I have had my own blog for about a year and I found this great online blogger quilt festival at Amy's Creative Side.... and I entered Roseville into this festival. Will you go there and vote for me?

Go here and find my image, then click on the heart in the upper right hand corner to vote.  Very simple. That's it. You also might want to look around at all the fabulous quilts here... I heard there are over 650 entries!

Find this image to vote:

Here are a few other images for fun. These are also posted on my blog with more info about the festival and links to my other entries in the art quilt category:

Thanks friends. It has been a long journey. So proud to have reached this point!

True confession.  What would you do-----if you were trimming the s.a. on the last miter using a ruler and cutter and CUT an uneven triangle out of the border!!!  I usually use a scissors and trim one side of the seam at a time.  This time I decided to use the ruler so the s.a. would be even as the background is light and the s.a. will shadow through.  It has been a week since the dastardly deed was done.  I cut off the end of the border and re-mitered it, but I have not felt like adding the corner applique as yet.
