Mission accomplished

The "quilt made in a week" is done - well, almost. The bind is not entirely finished, but enough to be wrapped up & given.
So did she like it? Well there were excited & repeated 'wow!' and 'how cool!' statements, so you have to be happy with that from a 13-year-old! Thank you to everyone who left comments, urging me on to finish this quilt in the last week. I have NEVER made a quilt so quickly & I certainly would have given up, but for your enthusiastic encouragement! I am cautious about posting photos of my children on my blog, but I will email each of you who have commented with some photos of my 'teenage' (how did that happen?!) blossie. 
I hope to take the finished quilt over to the Botanic Gardens & drape it artistically over a tree or something for some photos to show you soon. Best wishes, Bloom.
