Lewis' Quilt






Finally finished hand quilting this quilt for my nephew. I am very pleased with how fresh it looks.

Now, the sad part, it has to be sent to it's new owner. I always hate parting with my quilts - it's like losing a good friend or finishing a really good book.

I know that it will be loved in its new home.

It is indeed gorgeous and I know it will be well loved and snuggled under. But my dear, will you be 'stabilising' it and stitching in the ditch??!! Kidding! I'm so glad you got some of the lime elephants - perfect!! So, a nice girly one next......
