What are you most proud of? That I quilted it and that was when I didn't know anyting about quilting and quiltmotifs. I looked a lot at Leah Day's website for inspirations. I didn't know how to attache the binding, so I refered to a little handbook. I didn't come out well, so one year later, when I had learned more, I remade the binding.

Thank you for your lovely words. It was really hard to make, but if you take one step at a time you can really finish difficult projects.

Hours, I don't know, but from start to finished it took 4 months. And the remaking om the binding one year later of course. I have a lot of things going on in my life, so I can't quilt all the time. :)
