I can't believe i've finally done it!

last night i put my final stitch on my pinwheel quilt.
this quilt was a huge challenge for me.
from the piecing (boy did i unpick a lot!!!) - to the machine quilting on my trusty machine
and finally the metres and metres of binding
but it was well worth every stitch :)
