How fabulous is the feeling of finishing your very first quilt? After months of procrastination I finally decided to just take the plunge, once I'd started I became addicted, a quilting maniac until it was done. The freemotion quilting was... a test of my patience. Again, I'm not sure whether it's my lack of expertise or my rather basic model sewing machine that is creating the problems (dropped stitches and the thread breaking were top on that list) but I'm using it as a good excuse to start checking out new machines.

Ooooh, look at all that quilty goodness folded up there! I love the spotty binding!

And here it is after a spin in the washing machine, looking all gorg and quilty! I think I'm in love! I know a little boy who will be all wrapped up and snuggled this Christmas. Now I just want to make some pillows...
