I continue having intermittent problems with uploading images, which is why this post is several days later than I planned – Damm that error 404!
Now I can show you a quilt that is finally close to being finished – one that I started a whole 5 years ago.
This quilt itself is pretty traditional, but I like to think that the colours I have chosen are a little bit different to the usual choices that people make for little girl’s quilts. If the colours do not show up accurately on your monitor, they are….. buttery yellow, aqua and pale aqua, dusky mauves and purples, dusky salmon pinks and dusky red.
This particular quilt was made for Amelia’s bed, and has been sitting in a cupboard as a lonely quilt top, (aka flimsy) waiting to be quilted. After making a new friend at NOTY Quilters Guild, who happens to be a long arm quilter, I decided it was time to finish that quilt. Anita (Hillside Quilting in Warrandyte) quilted a beautiful all over pattern on the quilt in a softly coloured variegated thread.
I am super happy with the result and have just finished the binding. All that is left is to make a nice label, and it is done.
How many flimsys are in your cupboard?
