    My first large quilt finally finished!

    I made this quilt for my brother who is being treated for mantle cell lymphoma. Going through chemo and a stem cell transplant has left him feeling pretty crappy. I started it as soon as I could and I'm happy to say that it is done and it's on its way to him now. I hope that it provides lots of comfort, especially now that the weather is getting cooler.

    I also want to say a big thank you to the board. I picked up a number of tips and help from other board members, including: overdying the backing, not pressing the binding, trying a continuous bias binding, using wonder clips while hand-sewing the binding, how to wash a quilt with wool batting and probably others I can't think of right now. So, thank you!
