Finally, after months of waiting, I can reveal the finished 4OT quilt that I made way back at the start of the year. I made it for my sister's 21st birthday, which was yesterday, and the quilt has been happily received. Therefore, no need for me to keep it hidden!

Some of the quilting detail:

A peek at the back; I ended up using a cream thread on the front and a blue on the back, and I'm very pleased with how it turned out.

I also whipped up a couple of cushions out of the left over squares and strips, and used the left-over backing fabric for the backs...

On another note, tomorrow is the deadline for my lighting giveaway, so if you are an Aussie and would like a $100 voucher to buy the lighting of your choice, check out this post.
