All finished

12 08 2007

I have finally finished my patchwork quilt and I am quite proud of it. All the patchwork was hand stitched and the quilting was also done my hand. I used my old machine to sew on the binding.


I decided to go with large flowers as the quilting design as the quilt top was very busy and the back was so plain. It is kinda reversable as it is, so I am glad I went with this.


Here is a close-up of the flowers – try not to notice that my quilting stitches are not very even.


I have already bought the material for my next two quilting projects: a mini-quilt for fenicle and a large king-size sampler quilt for our bedroom. I can’t wait to get started!

Wow, that is amazing. I’m a novice and am interested to know how you managed to stitch the quilting with cotton to match the backing colour, but so it doesn’t show on the top? Thanks!
