A quilt, finished!

I'm feeling very proud of myself - a whole, real live, quilt - all finished, by me :) I've fiddled, collected fabric, and dabbled in the quilting thing, but this is the first one I've started and finished :)

It is for a friend's baby - well, the sister of a friend - she is part of our Wednesday morning Womens' Group. As I was finishing hand-stitching the binding on last night I got a phone call to say she was in labour - so the baby should have arrived by now.

As always, thanks for looking. Thanks also for all the comments on my last finishes!

I meant to say in that last post - that little "Quick Stitch" had 87 colours in it!!!

I hope everyone has a wonderful week :)

Its gorgeous Lisa, well done :) The colours are just wonderful, bright and cheery. So have you caught the quilting bug yet, lol.

It's beautiful Lisa - I'm being inspired from all sides recently to get back into a bit of patchwork. My machines are at Bernina getting an overhaul this week and then I'll have no excuse!

Well done Lisa - that is a fantastic achievement, it is lovely and the bright colours look great.

That is such a beautiful quilt - I love all the bright colours for a baby instead of the usual pastel shades. Fantastic work!!!
