I finished the Xs and Os quilt.
I finished it around Christmas and have not been able to get it to my mom's yet for her inspection (we celebrate Christmas on Winter Solstice with my mom).
The backing was my mom's choice. She gave me a flannel sheet to use, and I think it looks nice.
I was able to quilt in the corners of the X like I wanted. I changed out the needle and it worked just fine (stupid needle). Lesson learned!
I hope to get over there this week and send it soon after that.
