Finished Quilt

I must say this is the first quilt I have ever finished.  Seriously I have about 6 quilts I have started that are somewhere around waiting for completion.  The difference with this one is that I was making it for someone else. 

I am rather proud of it to be honest.  I don't do much sewing anymore and I was pleasantly surprised that I did not stuff this up.  Granted the poly cotton fabric nearly melted at one stage on the lowest heat setting on the iron, but thankfully I was able to hide that with the yellow stripes.

There was no exercise today as bub is being born via caesarian tomorrow and I really wanted my friend to have it before she went into hospital.  As soon as I got home I sat down and sewed the back to the front and wadding.  Mum had done some knitting as well so we went over almost as soon as I cut off the last thread.

Thankfully my friend loves it and that is the main thing. All that pain staking hand sewing around the giraffe paid off.
