I finally put the finishing handstitches on my quilt this evening and then threw it in the wash and dryer. It is finished. I did all of the quilting by machine, which took innumerable hours, but was very fun and enjoyable. I made this quilt very plain because it was to be used to learn and practice machine quilting. There are hundreds of mistakes, but I don't care. I really like the way it turned out. I put it in the wash and dryer because I really like the way quilts look after they've been washed. This one was created for the purpose of sitting in the family room! As soon as the weather gets the slightest bit chilly, I love to sit under a blanket and read or watch TV. THis one is the perfect size. DD came over this evening for a little while and I told her she had to test it out. She got all curled up in it (she is the blanket queen) and proclaimed, "This is a good one."
