Something small to quilt is finished

Last week, before my family arrived to stay with me I quickly cut and sewed the pieces together for a gift I plan on giving to the hostess of our Christmas in July.    Now, I knew I wouldn't be able to sew any of this while the kids were around so I was getting a bit nervous that it would not be finished on time.     This afternoon after I had my bi- annual breast screen x-ray, and did some shopping  I  decided to come straight home.      I took my sewing machine from the cupboard and sat until I had quilted this little quilt,  I had decided not to do too much, and am pleased with the way it has turned out.  I have just finished the binding and am really happy.       This is the perfect centre piece for either a round or square table.    I have to thank Julie from The Crafty Quilter for sharing her pattern on Pinterest, you can find the pattern here  I just hope my friend loves it.  I'm thinking of sewing one for myself now.
