I finished this quilt late on Sunday night and am taking it to the post office today. This 60″ X 60″ quilt is winging its way to Romania for a child who lives in an orphanage there.

The quilting is free motion – I used Elizabeth’s tutorial to help me through the process of creating flowers all over the quilt. This is only my second quilt to use free motion quilting – so it is not perfect, but I was happy with how it came out.
