The Donkeys are Done

Another quilt finished and off the list

I started this one in November last year. Wow, I didn't realize it was that long ago. Oh well, finished now!

It sat basted waiting for quilting for about 3 weeks while I decided on my options. Then, all of a sudden, I just decided to hand quilt it and I'm glad I did. It has that lovely soft drape and the colours almost glow off the grey sashing.

I used one of my favourite DS Quilts fabrics for the back (from good ole Spotlight). I really like the binding too, though I have no idea where it is from coz I'd cut the selvedges off  when I was making another quilt! I think it matches really well.
I gave it to a friend as a 'Thank You/Birthday' gift. She loves donkeys and helped my hubby with my foal when he was born and I was away. She saved his life really and I hope this quilt in some way says Thank you enough.
