Finished quilt

Just a quickie to post the photo of my FINISHED quilt! I'm so thrilled to have got to the end of this project - it was my first attempt at quilting and has been a bit of a challenge to say the least. Next time, if there is a next time, I think I will machine quilt it; the hand quilting took forever. I'd also buy a thinner wadding - this stuff is very thick and bouncy. It does, however, make for a very warm quilt, so "Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow"!

Photo of the binding - I loved this bit; it was really satisfying to cover all those raw edges.

I'd better go, Zumba awaits - let's see if I can get my head around the moves this week! Toodle pip.x


  1. That looks fabulous! Well done on the piecing and hand quilting. Love the colours.

  2. Your quilt is so pretty! The colours are beautiful (obviously I take no credit whatsoever for helping with the initial selection of fabrics :P ). There should definitely be a next time; if nothing else, you can only really have a quilt that thick on your bed during Winter and it would be a bit sad not to have something for Summer as well. xxx

  3. It's wonderful! And well worth struggling through all of that lovely thick batting to get such a bouncy warm quilt. I love doing the binding most of all I think, especially taking out that last pin, so satisfying. CJ xx

  4. Oh, it's fabulous! I love the thick wadding, it looks really squashy and warm. It will probably flatten a little as time goes on anyway. x
