First Quilt

I gave you a "Sneak Peek" of this on the 24th.  Now you get to see the whole thing. It's a memory quilt of Zeke.
Be gentle, it's my first quilt. It's entirely machine quilted. I did not do  a lot of "quilting" on it, just stitching in the ditch as I did not want to quilt over the photos. And yes, I did use red thread as I thought the effect of seeing the thread would be interesting. And I made my own binding.
It was hard to make but in spite of that I like quilting!
I'm working on my second quilt now. It's also a memory quilt, this time of Holly. I will try some different things on it.  Stay tuned...
