I didn't quite get Duncan's Thomas the Tank Engine quilt done for Christmas, but seeing as he has known about it for months, I was not too concerned.
When I saw that Pat Sloan was hosting a UFO weekend, I thought it would be a good chance to get this baby finished. The top has been done for some time, but I wanted to get another quilt done as a gift, and so it took priority. More on that on in a different post.

I sandwiched the quilt yesterday. I think I need a bigger working space b/c I could have done with making it tighter, but I had to work with what I was given.
Today Bill, bless him, had no problem keeping the kids happy upstairs while I spent probably a good 4 hours quilting. I was listening to the unabridged audiobook of Outlander by Diana Gabaldon and narrated by Davina Porter - what a wonderful way to pass the time. I love that book and it's like visiting old friends when I hear the story again.
So I got the quilt quilted! I need to bind it now, and the binding is done, but it will need to wait until tomorrow because I'm getting some quality kid time.
I'll post a picture of it when it is finished.
