Another Quilt Finished

It has taken me 5 years to finish this.
Sewn with good intentions to complete, years ago
for my oldest boy... shame on me!
I have had a love/hate relationship with this quilt,
Loved pieceing it together,
hated quilting it,
mainly because of the thread I chose.
So after many broken needles, broken thread, my sewing machine skipping stitches... its finally finished.... and even though the underside is awful ( puckered everywhere ) and the tension on my machine was crap...... its finished!!!!

Seaside theme and all, for my marine mad boy...

Finished with one day left in time for his 9th birthday...
the verdict?
he loves it but he placed it on his bed with wrong side up!

Typical! hehe
