Finished! and Celebrating colour :)
I finished Mum's quilt yesterday - just in time for christmas :). Please excuse the utterly uninspiring background - this area is getting re-done and is in a bit of a mess. I can't believe it is finally finished. The squares are from the Fandango fabric line.
Don't quilts look all pretty folded up? They look so comfortable, just waiting there for somebody to snuggle up in it.
Ahhhh, binding - how I love thee. I love the look of hand-binding on a quilt. I did most of the binding while watching Season 3 of True Blood on DVD - I really enjoyed this part (both the binding and the DVD).
The quilting was just a stitch-in-the-ditch around the squares. The backing is scrumptious flannel - it will be lovely and warm during winter.
I'm going to enter it in the Celebrating Colour competition - you should check it out - lots of amazing crafty goodness :)
