    Working through my UFOs. This was one of the very first quilts I ever started. I did most of the work on my old machine and OMG, I really can recognize how much I improved. Which made it difficult to finish this quilt, since the points were awful! But I made it work and can appreciate how much I've grown as a quilter.

    This was originally intended for a business partner's son, but we haven't spoken in 3-4 years, so this is now going to my old boss' son, Ian (thankfully I hadn't done the applique when I put this down 3-4 years ago). I had given a quilt to the boss' daughter, but didn't have one for Ian. So I hope to get it quilted for Xmas.

    I designed the pattern myself. There are 2 inspirational quotes, that I can't remember what they say. But they're good :D And applique is by hand, reverse applique. I'm very proud of myself on that, since it's one of my first applique pieces.

    Once again, an adorable quilt. Great layout using those stars. I've never seen it quite like that before.

    So, is this Ian 3 or 30? :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
