Hooray!

A finish in the nick of time! This quilt I started at least 4 to 5 years ago for my eldest daughter.... and finished it yesterday afternoon. Everything I did was first approved by her... she wanted only in the ditch quilting and that's what I did. Strangely, I always thought a quilt that only has stitch-in-the-ditch quilting is not "quilted"; but that was her choice, she wanted it soft and comfy! That's what I did! I used Quilters Dream Wool batting and one can actually see on the photo the puffiness of the quilt.

She is leaving home soon (the 10th of January) to go to University (almost a 1000 miles from home!)

and at least she has a quilt! I am very happy with the end result AND it is a FINISH for November!

gorgeous,

I like quilts with stitch quilting, as they are more snuggley
