Holly's quilt

At last, here are pictures of the finished quilt. I know it has taken me a long time, but it was definately a labour of love and something I hope Holly will want to keep for a long time. I ended up hand quilting it, by stitching a cross (or a kiss) at each patch corner. It was hard going in the centre of the quilt and there was a point where I didn't think I would ever get it finished. But now it is, Holly loves it and it is in pride of place on her bed.

This is gorgeous Jane!! To have hand quilted it is really special and I am sure that Holly will treasure it always! You do realise that quilting and patchwork can be addictive, so when will you start the next one?

Wowzers! Such invigorating colors will make wake-up time so much easier. I love how it turned out and think she won't outgrow it once she hits her teens. It's fab.
