a quilt finish!
I thoroughly enjoyed making this quilt,
joining Elizabeth @OPQ in her free sew-along!
I started this back in January, not long after we moved
to our temporary home at the beach.
I've quilted it in Perle 8 thread, appropriately using a
reel of Superior threads
that Elizabeth sent me eons ago!
I guess it was waiting for this quilt all the time!
Then I raided my depleting stash of threads,
using a DMC in purple and finally some Aurifil hot pink.
I pieced the backing from fabric I had in my stash,
and bound it in an orange print bought specially for this
I was organised enough to make the label before I
bound the quilt so it is firmly attached to the back!
It is windy here in Brighton today, and rain is on its way.
So just some quick shots outside....
with this one to leave you with!
