Today I tried something new!

Instead of handquilting I used my machine. That was way faster! It wasn't easy at first. I used a series on YouTube. 4 Tutorials on Free Motion Quilting for beginners. I practiced a bit on a 'small-quilt-sandwich' before I started on the real quilt.
And this is the result! It is not perfect, but I'm quite pleased with it. Now it only needs binding and I can send it off.

That quilting looks great! I can't believe it was your first effort! I've recently picked up FMQing and I'll admit I'm getting pretty obsessed with the whole thing.
