It's done! I started this quilt last November during a Sue Spargo retreat in Sisters, and it had been sitting awhile. But with the deadline looming for the Northwest Quilters Guild challenge, I needed to finish it this weekend.
|hand-braided binding - Lulu tried all weekend to get at it|
It's my first wool quilt, first applique quilt, first hand-quilted quilt, and first Sashiko quilt, if you can call it that. More importantly, it's my first challenge quilt. I'd wanted to participate, and that was the only goal. The icing on the cake is it was fun. Lulu had fun watching, but was disappointed I wouldn't let her play with the fancy threads and yarn.
