So close---I can almost taste the victory!

After two years, I am SO CLOSE to finishing this quilt.  The machine quilting is about 75% done.  My stippling is improving.  It's not great, in that the stitch length is kind of inconsistent and I have to stop and start a lot because I forget where I am in relation to what I've already done, but it is definitely getting better.

I know it's hard to see in the photos (I'm using variegated thread that has all the same colors as the quilt).  I'm hoping to be done with it now by next Wednesday so I can bring it with me to book club to show my two quilter friends who will be there.  Hopefully, I can finish the book we're reading for the meeting too.  I've been dragging my feet a little on that one.
