Finishing this has been my One Monthly Goal for November.
I managed it!
Here it is: quilted, labelled and bound.

|with a pretty Danish fabric for the backing.|
The pattern, including the embroidery motifs, was from a QAL by Jacquelynne Steves. I thought about the quilting for a long time, and then, as time was running out, I went for a meander. I used off-white 50 wt thread (Aurifil 2309) on the off-white triangles, and very dark green (5012) on the rest. I used off-white quilting thread in the squares with embroidery. The embroidery was done with 3 strands of DMC stranded cotton.
By the way, that's not black fabric there, but very, very dark green. It's darker than I expected when I ordered it online!
