I started this a couple of months ago and finally finished last night. I backed, batted, quilted and finished it all last night. I machine quilted, which isn't pretty at all, but I didn't have the time to hand quilt, and my machine is not set up to quilt. I figured since it goes under the tree and will have presents over it that it was more important to just get it done than to have it be perfect, which it certainly is NOT anyway. I am very much an amateur.
