Seminole quilt bound and finished

Done! I have titled it "To The Lighthouse" because of the lighthouse fabric in the central panel and as an homage to Virginia Woolf's luminous novel which I reread several months ago and which impressed me yet again as a lyrical masterpiece.

    1. Sure, I will happily teach a machine quilting class. Not that I am an expert, but I am pleased with how this quilt turned out.
