Stop The Presses!

After going great guns on quilting the Confetti borders it seemed to take forever to sit down and finish off the final corner but - and Stephanie, you might want to sit down for this - it's now finally all quilted. Miracle of miracles! So cue the choir and lets get that Halleluiah Chorus started!!

This one has been in the works for so long that it's hard to even believe that it's possible that it could be quilted, but quilted it is.

I'll have to go back and see when I started making it, but suffice it to say that it's been years in the making. It will be a bit of an adjustment not having it around the house - it's become like a piece of the furniture and I think I'm going to miss it.

Now the search begins in earnest for a binding. Jane had given me a piece from her stash to try but when I got it home the colours were off just enough to make it look odd. Ah well, shopping for fabric is a tough job, but someone's got to do it....M

Congratulations Marie! Is that your first ever hand-quilted quilt? You did a great job, and I'm sure Stephanie will love it.

Such a joyous moment when the last stitch is quilted. It looks beautiful and snuggly.
