This is a quilt I recently completed for my sister. It was her, ahem, Christmas present, although she very patiently waited for it until May. I embarrass myself. I am quite please with it in the end, however!
It is in no way perfect, partly due to my own level of skill and partly to my antique sewing machine's reluctance to sew through several layers of cloth and batting. The dear old thing is a work horse, but this was asking a bit much. It is, of course, somewhat difficult to quilt on a regular machine anyway, since the arm is so short. I managed by rolling the extra bulk up on that side, and my quilt was small enough to manage. For the next, larger project I have in the works, I think finding a local professional quilter is in order.
