I've actually had this done for quite a while. I ran into issues finding batting. It's really pricey and all cotton or wool. (Where's Wal-Mart when you need it?) Once I bit the bullet, I got it put together and found it really hard to quilt. The batting is quite thick. It's going to be a LONG process, but worth it!
I also ran out of the main pink material. I knew I'd never be able to find more (it was bought in the States), so I improvised. On one side I put on an Ethiopian map to which I will add the date when we finally complete this arduous process! On the other side I put a flower with her name. I love how it turned out--it's really bright and cheerful, but also very pretty!
