Megans Law & A Mug Rug Swap

First Quilt Finish of the Year!

What can I say about this quilt... this quilt was my Megan's Law Quilt. Everything that could go wrong, did go wrong. I broke needles, my thread kept snapping, my backing fabric was short by 1/2 an inch, ext., ext.. It took me 11 months to finish this quilt, because I would get so frustrated from everything that went wrong. I felt like every time I would start working on it I would run into a new issue. So today when I put the last stitch on the binding I just about did a happy dance!

Over all I am very happy with the way it came out. Yes, there are a few flaws (Megan's flaws) but I think they give the quilt more character. Over the 11 months I that i work on this quilt I grew quite attached to it and I Hope the woman I made this for will love it as much as I do.
