    Don't look at the binding, it's hideous! But overall, I'm really proud of myself. This now lives on my daughter's bed :) She LOVES it!

    Thanks so much everyone :) I've started my next quilt and it is for my 10 year old son. I am making the Dewey block (if you know that?) and my son is SO excited!

    I think it's lovely and you should be very proud.
    The best kind of sleep
    beneath Heaven above,
    is under a quilt
    surrounded by love.
