Yay - it is FINALLY complete!!
It only took two bloomin' years to get this one done and I'm still not in love with it! Am I allowed to say that? Who actually admits that they don't like a quilt that they've made? Hours and hours have been poured into this quilt and even more hours spent trying to ignore it! I think I'm mostly embarrassed at my non-precise-piecing, or maybe my get-it-done-quick quilting?
Can you believe that this quilt was started in January/February 2012, soon after I went to the first London Modern Quilt Guild meeting. So, it is a GREAT feeling to have it out of the WiP pile and looking for a home - yay! All of the pictures are before washing and it measures 51 x 70 inches. I will definietly add some colour catchers in the wash in case any colours decide to run. Fingers crossed they don't otherwise it will be two years totally wasted! Here is the back - I love the back!
I chose to do some organic straight quilting as you can just see in the picture above which I think works pretty well - much better than the stipple I did on it and ripped out ages ago.
I do love the white binding and my corners - both of those worked out really well. I can't wait to see it all washed and dried and all scrinkly - that is the best bit of a quilt right!?
But alas, it is done. Yay for me. One quilt off my to-do list, 13 more to go!
