Well I finally made one. I had some leftovers from my new potholder design. I grabbed some backing fabric and went to work quilting.
The quilting only took an hour or so. I tried to make it very close together, something I rarely do. As I was quilting I had a recipient in mind.
When we all met for dinner one Sunday I brought it along as a belated birthday present too. Very happy with the results and the feedback. I will try one of these again.
