Vintage quilt is done

All but the washing, blocking, and binding.  I say that like it's nothing but that's still a bit of work to do.
This is the most quilting I've done on one quilt yet and the first time I've done quilting around applique.  I am pretty happy with it though my perfectionist bent leaves me knowing that it could be better.  I found that I actually liked the stitch-in-the-ditch more than the freehand work.  Maybe that is a good thing for me because I admire the quilts I see that are done so well with ruler work and such perfection.

Tin Lizzie finally came out with a 1/4" foot!  I kind of assumed that the foot I had was 1/4" but using a ruler showed me that it wasn't, it's smaller.  That was a bit of a challenge doing SID, let me tell you!  I ordered the foot even though it's highway robbery, the price they charge for it.
