Mostly when I show you ‘finished items’ they are very rarely finished. They are flimsies, which as you know I am totally cool with.
But this quilt, which I’ve shown you before, has a place that it is to live, and it needs to be quilted to live there!
I’ve been in my current house 9 years. This quilt was originally designed to go on my bed, but it got too hard and I decided to quit at the borders and make it a wall hanging. It’s been on the go that long.
It languished for years while I fiddle faddled with other things.
This year was the year to finish it. I only had a small amount of applique to go, and then I handed it over to my expert quilter and she has given it back to me as a work of art.
I’m stupidly pleased with it. I did a really good job (if I say so myself) at the applique and Mum’s done an outstanding job of the quilting.
It’s a real pretty quilt, I think. All I have to do now is hang the thing on the wall and I’m done! Let’s hope I get to that quickly!
Hope you all have a lovely day, and I’ll see you soon!
