Look! I tied it! I loved doing it so much that I am going to tie the rest of them. There is a errrrr doh though! Found a new way of doing the binding and just went full steam ahead, without thinking. The binding is on back to front, but the general concensus of opinion here is that it looks good that way. Oh how I love that backing fabric. Wonder if I can persuade everyone that a trip to Javerlhac is needed this afternoon.
My Sophie is counselling a young man in Hamburg, Germany who has relapsed. She showed him this blog and he has asked if he can have Sophie's Quilt instead. I emailed Sophie's sister and she has agreed to let the first quilt be sent to David.
So David, I am taking this quilt back to England with me on Friday and it will be sent to Germany as soon as possible after Christmas. I cannot get it to you before then as there is a good chance of it getting lost in the Christmas post and I don't want that to happen!
I am taking the blocks back to the UK with me and will start planning Sophie's. I should have it ready next month.
In the meantime, thank you all for your loyal support for this worthwhile cause, for your help in wrapping the world with love and for your continuing support.
See you in 2007!
Oh and if anyone knows of any quilters in Russia, India, Africa, South America or any other country that isn't represented so far pass the word on!

I really really don't know what to do with this now.
It looks so lovely that I dare not quilt it.
Anyone any ideas on how I should machine quilt this, having never machine quilted in my life!
And what about the backing material?
Javerlhac were selling it off at 5 Euro a meter. I got 1.5 meters and might be going back to see if they have still got it. I love it!
