Woohoo! I finished this quilt! It’s a bit of a story – I bought the fabric in June 2010 at the Sandown Quilt show. I fancied sewing something pretty so purchased these fat quarters:
And then at the sewing class I used to go to, they ran a class based on this quilt using the gorgeous garden party by Moda
Here’s a picture of the original:
My background is a little cream pattern on cream, and I have used 3 different patterns.
I decided to use green for my sashing, here it is without the final cream border:
I rather like the green sashing, makes it look like trellis don’t you think?
I am a hand quilter not a machine quilter (though it’s on my list of things to learn to do in 2012!), so I decided to quilt flowers around the edge, and then more in the final border. I did machine quilt ‘in the ditch’ around the sashing. It looks fabulous on the back!
Some green binding and I’ve called it done!
Here’s the final quilt:
I’m giving it to my Mum for Christmas, shhh don’t tell her!
