The quilt is finally finished and given to my sister for her special birthday.
A label was sewn at the very last minute
It was a difficult one to quilt because of the colour of the threads and fabric....I didn't want pale pink thread crossing over the middle of the red section and my machine cannot cope with anything clever or fancy (cant cope with much actually).....so I machined lines, then did my first bit of hand quilting in circles on the colours. I wish I'd had time to do it all by hand....although the stitches aren't great I like the effect and I guess that my stitches will get better with practice......need to find a better thimble though.
I used Aurifil thread for the first time and I'm completely won over. Really good in the machine and using for the hand stitching. No knots or breaking.
and a cake! well a double pavlova as requested by Sis.
what shall I start on now......Kaffe inspired me thinks.
