So far, so good, but then I lost momentum and did not want to work on this quilt. I wanted to work with prettier fabrics where colours work well together. I procrastinated and used the excuse of no Manchester United backing as my excuse for not completing it. However, it turns out Romeo had not forgotten his quilt and mentioned it a few times to my sister (his mum) and my Grandma to remind me.
Then last week my sister sent me this photo and I was guilt-tripped because poor Romeo is using his sisters' quilts because he does not have his own!
I quickly got my act together, bought a duvet from eBay to cut up for the backing and have now begun the quilting. I do not love this quilt but I do love Romeo and I know this quilt is probably the most eagerly anticipated so I am determined to finish it as soon as possible so when I next see him he receives it.
