It's done!!! The "nightmare" UFO is completed!!!

I'd never thought I was going to complete it! I decided tying it, which went much faster than I'd expected! (It's the first time I've done tying). This is the result after 4-5 days of intensive work! :-) For the tying I've used two colors of pearl cotton; light- and dark blue. The knots are placed every 3" (8cm) and cut approx 1" (2,5cm). It has 849 knots, and I've done running stitches on the diagonal lines.

Hallo fra Norge! Jeg får vel kanskje skrive på engelsk her. I found your blog by Quilting bloggers. I was surprised when I looked at the exotic country Mauritius and found a Norwegian blogger :) All your quilts are beautiful.
