Friday Finished Object!

It's finished!  George's quilt is done before it had to be which is great.   Now it gets to go to the Weavers and Spinners Guild to be shown off and to Stitch as well.   My neighbour wants to see it too so if I spot her I'll show it to her.
This is what it looked like earlier this week:
Finished quilting, but not bound
And after 1 day of machine sewing the binding, another day unpicking the first row of stitching that I put in the wrong place and 2 days of handsewing
All bound and complete

The back, love this almost as much as the front!

hanging on the gate.
George likes it but is aware he doesn't get it till 10th December.   We've still got to do birthday invitations for him, we'll go to the movies I think and he gets to invite one friend.

While I was hanging the quilt on the fence I spotted an iris down the driveway
Can't remember the name, Sultan's something or other.  Glorious though.
Not got a lot of knitting done due to concentrating on the quilt.   I'm hoping to get section 2 of the KAL shawl done today now though and hopefully get started on David and Karen's quilt again tomorrow.   A few rows have been done on the travel sock, but it's only going slowly.  The rest of the knitting and spinning is on hold till the second quilt is complete, oh and there may be another sock to do as a test-knit, it'll be for Thomas which will give him 3 pairs; might be his Christmas present even if it's not quite ready in time.

Thanks, I'm really pleased with the end result and it's been much admired by everyone who's seen it so far.

Very nice, still can't remember the name of it ?

It's Tula Pink's Kiss Kiss pattern, had to use a little imagination to visualise what it would look like but I think it worked out well.
