Over 220 Yards and Counting

I finished up a 220 yard spool of thread last night while hand quilting my turtle quilt. That means there is more than 220 yards of thread in that quilt since I have several spools of that thread that I have used on this quilt.

I have 3 more blocks to quilt and then I can start on the borders. It seems to be taking me longer to finish a swirled block, but my stitches are much more uniform and I am getting more stitches per inch.

I really like how it looks and it is very warm. My youngest is getting very excited about me finishing it. I hope the smell of his dorm room doesn't permeate it permanently.
