Burning the midnight oil.


I didn't baste all four quilt tops. I got two done and decided that was enough! I thought I just might be able to finish one of the two today if I got on with the quilting this morning. I picked the red scrappy quilt to start on and just finished the binding a few minutes ago. Fortunately I had the Commonwealth Games to keep me entertained whilst I sewed. The quilt is grided in the centre (using the blocks as a guide) and I have quilted some free motion flowers on the border. Done!

Lovely quilt - and very impressive free motion flowers. It comes together beautifully - I wouldn't have guessed it was a scrappy quilt

Such a nice quilt ... love the colours. You have done a great job. I love the flowers, they look so pretty. Doesn't it feel good to finally finish something. I'm a bit of a start the project, don't finish, then start another project type person. Think I'll have to change that ASAP.

Your quilt has come out well, good idea to have nice geometric quilting in the body of the quilt and then do a bit of free motion on the borders, makes it nice and simple.
