The quilting's the star!

Today I am tired, Easter holidays are tiring! So I'm going to give you lots of photos and a few words. Probably best that way!

Hugest thanks to Jenna at Sew Happy Geek, without her awesome QAL this wouldn't be here :-)

everyone casually drapes their quilts over the garden bench - right? Well they do when the 7 year old on hand is too short to hold it up!

Circle quilting, may not be the last time you see this!


FMQ squiggly lines




Ooops, so those quilt labels I printed are not washable after all ;-)




Obligatory folded quilt shot!

Backed in a £1 charity shop flannel sheet that took days of hunting for!

Quilt details:

Sew.Happy.Quilt QAL
Top Pieced in Denyse Schmidt Hope Valley
Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 batting (single layer)
Backed in Cotton Flannel Sheet from Charity Shop
Machine quilted in a circle pattern and FMQ squiggly lines in borders.

I have another quilt finish for you tomorrow! (no wonder I am tired hehe)

Lucy @ Charm About You said...

Yes they are tiring!!
The quilt looks wonderful - think you better edit your post to say how you did those circles because I want to know to!!
Sorry about the label ;) doesn't detract from the brilliance though!

Sarah said...

Its an absolute beauty, you should be really happy with it!

Nicky said...

Great piecing, great quilting - Well done Emily ! You must be so proud and with good reason!

Grrr re the label - I just quilt mine FMQ style on the quilt somewhere and it is easier than you think! Practice a bit first though!

Looks fab, love the circle and FMQ combo. Bugger on the label though...

Catherine said...

Love that quilt! I back all of my quilts in charity shop finds, sheets, single quilts etc: it's a fraction of the price!

Fiona @ Poppy Makes said...

It looks amazing! I though about doing that QAL but never got round to it. Wish I had now after seeing yours!

Oh my goodness you're quilting mad! Look at you! The circle quilting here is just gorgeous. Great choice!
