TA DA!! The Quilt is DONE!

I have *finally* finished DX's One Hundred Good Wishes Quilt!! The last few inches of blind stitching the binding strip was the hardest. But *it* *is* *done*- just about one year after we got back home with him (hey, I never claimed to work quickly).

So... what do you think?

I'm so happy with it- the top is made from 103 different "patches" of material, all that came with a good wish, with another piece of material given to us used for the cream-coloured inside border. On the back, we have "Hairy Potter" (upside down in the photo below) from a t-shirt donated for the quilt by a good friend, Vi.

Thomas the Tank material makes up the rest of the backing, as well as the binding strip.

Phew!

I have another quilt top ready to go for one of my girls. So, maybe by Christmas... or Valentine's Day... or Easter... lol! First, I have to finish the sweater that I hemmed and hawwed about back in June (I decided on the funky, swingy pattern, and I now have a back and half a front!).

I'll keep you posted.
