I made a quilt! This doesn't happen often, I know. It helps to have external motivation. In this case, the quilt is a retirement gift for a special, beloved teacher who happens to really, really love the color purple.
My kids are holding it up in the picture below. Finished size is about 48"x60" or so.
The whole thing went together in about 2 days - cutting, piecing, sewing on a soft backing - until I tried finishing the binding by machine. That looked terrible, so I spent a week picking it out and then tacking it down by hand.
I'm trying to improve my mitered corners. Out of the four corners, one I absolutely butchered. I'm not sure what went wrong. The other three look pretty good.
