Finish quilt - check!

I’ve been so busy with teaching Spanish lately that I haven’t had free time to spend on sewing. I was finally able to find some time yesterday to finish my first “real” quilting project – a Christmas wall hanging. Thankfully the photo doesn’t really show that the top ended up almost a full inch wider than the bottom. Oops! Still, I’m pretty proud of my attempt. Too bad I’ll have to wait until next Christmas to display it. I’ve already started planning my next project though. The hard part here is finding fabric (it’s almost impossible to find cotton fabric in the stores here), but with a little scrounging and borrowing from other quilters and maybe resorting to cutting up secondhand clothes I should be able to gather enough.
