This is the first quilt I’ve made, and it will probably be my last (famous last words?). I started it many years ago – bought the fabric and cut the pieces. Then it sat on the shelf for a while.

I finally did the binding last week! Done. It was originally intended to be a sort of cover for the futon, but since I took so long making it I went out and bought a futon cover in the interim…
