    Smile Finally Finished!

    I finally finished this quilt. Special circumstances had turned it into an UFO for a couple of years, but now it's done!

    Not sure if the quilting police would agree on that, but it is partially hand-quilted (the inner square), and then I bought a sewing machine about a month ago and decided that it'll take ways too long to finish this by hand... So I sped up the process a bit!

    The machine quilting is not perfect (first time for me to try feathers), but I won't show you a close up of the bits that would not pass judgement, and I'm happy with it as it is, despite the flaws!

    Now it's on my bed:

    Wonderful quilt. My feelings about those bits & pieces that don't pass inspection is ...... if it can't be seen from a galloping horse then it doesn't matter.

    It is beautiful. I love your choice of colors and the uniqueness of your pattern.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    The quilt as a whole is my own design, but I want to give credit to that centre piece. I "stole" the idea from this pattern:

    As usual, I didn't buy the pattern but design my own when looking at the picture...
