My grandma and I worked on this quilt over the course of about two weeks.
(Not every day, but still more hours than I even know...)
It was quilted just in time for me to bring it to college,
and it turned out better than I ever could have imagined!
Although I did 90% of the cutting and sewing,
there is absolutely no way that I could have done it without my grandma's guidance...

In my room:

So, what do you think?
