I did finish it
Here are a couple of pics of the quilt I made for my DS - he really likes it, which is the most important thing, but it was a learning experience for me. I didn't realise how difficult it would be to stitch a thicker batting by machine so I just had to do my best and stitch in the ditch between the squares. I never intended to do anything more complicated on it but just doing that was a real headache. Note the cunning way that there are no close-ups! The second pic was meant to be the only one I posted but the quilt did seem a bit too far away! We all went to the cinema yesterday to see 'Pirates of the Caribbean - Dead Man's Chest' - a bit of a disappointment and way too long at 2 1/2 hours althought the more comic parts were good. It was only the second day of release here in the UK and the cinema was packed.
