After simply ages I finished a quilt - this went to a baby girl Keziah who will take the quilt with her to Dubai. I really must try to quilt more - have finished several blocks but it is the putting it together which takes time. This is baby Keziah's quilt. I did a big quilt so that she could use it for a couple of years at least.
