It's always a relief to finish a top and have it at the quilters, especially when there is a deadline to meet (1st birthday present early March). I think I've mentioned the quilt is cot sized, so it's not big. I can't wait to get it back from Rose of Pandora Quilting.
I dropped in three smaller quilters too so I'm going to be very busy making and sewing binding!
And it only took a bit more than two years.
It was started, stopped, re-started and the applique finished, then nothing while other projects were started, finished and patterns written before the timing was right to complete it.
I've been thinking about and ever so slowly working towards a collection of little quilts I can hang on the wall in my office/workroom. I do have a stash of little quilts and could make a nice display of my red and white ones, but it's not the look I'm going for.
To be honest I'm not sure what look I'm after but I'm sure I need an appliqued quilt!
Am I having fun planning and dreaming about the quilts that will one day grace my wall?
Yes I am and at the core that's all that really matters.
This block is from a project I designed for Quilters Companion five years ago.
I'm using fabrics from my stash and a few new ones from the Shine On and Figs and Shirtings ranges.
I'm almost done cutting out the applique pieces, only the leaves to go.
