This is the quilt that I made for my grandson for his first birthday. He loves it.
Finished the top of an african animal quilt last night. Today, I will prepare it for quilting . I haven't quilted on the machine yet, I usually do that by hand, but will give it a go tomorrow.
Ian is away for the weekend, so plenty of time for quilting. I am baby sitting my grandchildtren tonight, so will go and see Alice in Wonderland with them and their Aunty.

Hi Elaine and welcome to this wonderful blogland. I'm looking forward to seeing some of your UFOs. Sadly to say that, you will have more UFOs now that you've started blogging (just kidding). Hugs Nat
