My first finish for 2011

Its been along time in the making but I have finally finished my Angel story quilt, the reason it took so long is I decided to hand quilt each square, well I hadn't worked on it for over 6 months then I decided its about time I got to it and just got it done.
I stippled around each of the applique blocks and the border.
Its such a pretty quilt, I love the soft colours and the girlishness about it.
Having 4 males in my house I need a few pretties.

This is my first finish for the OPAM group I just joined. Whoo hoo.
