My sister's quilt did get finished on time, I was sewing on the binding just as Santa was arriving. It was that close. I under estimated the time it would take to finish this twin sized quilt. Much different than a quick baby quilt! Either way it's done and sister has already been enjoying it's warmth.
The top is FMQ with a loopy flower all over pattern. This was the fist time FMQ on my new machine so I wanted a forgiving pattern. It's one of those don't look to close finishes. After a quarter way through the quilting I found my rhythm then things started to improve. The backing is flannel, so this one was an extra heavy, twin sized struggle to get through the machine. Super warm, and a big workout! Pretty sure it negated all those sweets I have been enjoying.
