Finished at Last!

At last I finished this Chocolate and Turquoise quilt. Its taken me about a year to do, and has been sat on my frame to be quilted since before Christmas! The top is from a little book call, 'More Strip Piecing', and can be made using a Jelly Roll. Needless to say, not having found a completely turquoise JR, I set about cutting my own. I was really pleased with the top, but now it is quilted, I love it. Unfortunately, this little baby is going to be re-homed soon. Made by special request, it is going to my partners sister. she hasn't seen the finished article, just when it was in the flimsy top stage. I'm sure she will love it as much as I do. I hope so. It's always hard trying to meet someone else's expectations of what you can achieve, don't you think. Today spring was almost in the air, the clocks went forward, and the blackbird is nesting my my clematis at the bottom of the garden again. And the sun was out, so at least I could get a half decent pic of the quilt on the washing line. Do you like?

Well, between the frustration of builders dust and a faltering kitchen remodel, I've also been working on quilting my Op Challenge quilt. I've been playing with the ideas in a book by Suzzane Earley from an earlier post. And I'm really loving the results. But its not all been plain sailing. I'll tell you more about that soon. In the mean time, happy quilting!
