My First CQ Quilt

This is my first CQ quilt. I named this quilt "The Olympian Quilt" as a started this quilt on the 08/08/08, the day the olympics started.
It took me 3 months to complete.
I learnt the stitches by looking at other pics and was really inspired by the beautiful work that other ladies had done - I did have help though as I had the book called "The Embroidery Stitch Bible"by Betty Brarnden.
I've had this book for a few years and alas was able to finally use it.
