It took me months to do this quilt. Not a new experience for all hand quilters; but I was getting so yarn bored with quilting the reverse. And the rayon backing fabric caused some problems, being so slippery that it was hardly ready to stay where I wanted it to be. This is my second quilt with a binding and the first one with a batting. Now that I won the battle, I'm rather proud and looking forward to give it to my husband tonight, almost six months after his birthday for which this was meant to be a present. I hope it will give him a pleasant and deep sleep.
