Another quilt is finished!


Remember this quilt I was making? I started it last January. Well this weekend I have finally finished it. I decided to hand quilt it using #8 perle cotton in pale green. It looks really neat, and although I would be the first to say that the hand quilting is probably not perfect, it's my very first attempt at it and I'm super pleased with the result!


I've sewn on the bindings, and just have to sew on a sleeve to the back so I can hang it on the wall. I'll do that while I watch tv tonight.


Don't you just love it when a plan comes together?
