It's Quilted

My latest UFO is quilted...but it ain't pretty!  Seems that this quilt was pieced by a beginner (aka me, about 9 years ago) and it was not square and more than a few blocks were a little on the full side.  Needless to say, this quilt was a quilter's nightmare!  You can see in the photo that seams were pushed to the left as I was quilting and there are even a few puckers here and there.  I quit swearing after quilting about four rows and decided "it is what it is" and a non-quilter will think it's lovely.  As soon as the binding is on I'm shipping it off to the local hospice and hopefully it will end up in the hands of someone who doesn't quilt!

Once it's washed and dried it you won't hardly know the difference! Good for you getting it done! :0)
