The Emma & Michael Quilt revealed!

This is the finished quilt. Sue quilted it for me with musical notes, so preetty!
MrC is holding it up - it's about 150cm square (5 ft x 5 ft).

 And THIS is the back. I got this hilarious Wizard of Oz panel fabric recently, because it was on special. It is so bad, it's good!!
I used up all of the extra bits to make the back big enough.
 The binding fabric was the one that didn't end up in the quilt itself - it is covered in punctuation marks.
I do so love it! And so do they. Even though they only got it for one night before having to give it back to me so I can display it for a while in the shop! heehee!
Quilters are notorious for this - because our work is sometimes needed for talks, exhibitions and classes. We always give them back however...eventually!
