John Deere Quilt's Done!

I finished the commissioned John Deere quilt yesterday. It's all washed and crinkly now... oh the squishy goodness :)

It turned out pretty well despite my initial reservations. Don't get me wrong, I'm not about to make myself a John Deere quilt or anything, but I think given the subject matter, this quilt doesn't make me lose my lunch.

I hand quilted this one too. Sucker for punishment, that's me!

I used a plaid for the binding since the John Deere fabric had plaid backgrounds.

It's now all folded, tied up and ready for delivery :)

I forgot to say that when we went to Northampton, I went to our favourite secondhand bookstore and found this book. For free. FREE! The spine's a little bit broken (it's intact though) so they were just giving it away. Lovely!

I love how this turned out, even though the subject is less than ideal :)

I think it matches the room beautifully. You really should reconsider.
