I got a ton of sewing done this winter, but due to a batting shortage I only fully finished one quilt. It's the biggest thing I've free motion quilted so far, and it turned out great. This was made by request for someone who regularly travels to our place by train (21 hours each way). The criteria were: red, hammer & sickle design, small enough to carry in your baggage, big enough to cover a person sleeping uncomfortably in a seat.

The wholecloth front is quilted entirely with black thread, except for the small design at the top which was done in white. Since there wasn't much room here for creative piecing, I decided to have a bit more fun with the back. I love the back!
Despite having to deal with almost constant thread breaks, I'm really proud of my quilting on this one!
After a thorough sitting, my quality assurance assistant declared it adequate:
It has now gone off to its new home, where it awaits its first train ride!
