What are you most proud of? Completing the quilt, I couldn't machine quilt as my sewing machine was just too small, so determined that I would finish it, no matter what, I hand stitched in the ditch through the whole quilt and hand quilted a few of the blocks, it took some time to do, but I thoroughly enjoyed the experience, it turned out to be very therapeutic and so rewarding. I think the hardest bit was putting it in the washing machine! I was terrified but after a years worth of working on it, it had become a little grubby, so I bit the bullet, prayed a lot and washed it. The photo is of it on the washing line, and, thank the lord, it washed out well.

Thank you Lucy3434, you are so very kind, I am very pleased with the result, it has to be said that it was more luck than judgement with regards the overall colouring.
