I've Done it!


Modelled by my lovely assistant, here is my quilt for a child in Italy! Yay! I've finished it! Well, except for a label. Now that I have finished it I am friends with it again. I've even thought of a way of making another quilt without having to heave it all about so much but I don't think I'll be rushing in to make one just yet as I've got my other projects to catch up with. I've put in a request to my brother to encourage my nephews to have some children so I can make for them ;o)


Don't look too closely but this is the reverse of the quilt. It's a little bit rucked in one or two places but I am quite pleased with it. (My poor DH was manfully holding it while battling the wind and feeling poorly, bless) (The blowing wind in the air not the other kind, just in case you were wondering lol).
There is still time for you to make a quilt for the children affected by the earthquake in Italy earlier this year. Follow this link for details.

Well done Juile - it looks good!


Oh well done you!!! What an excellent quilt. I'm sure the recipient will be thrilled. You can see why people send their quilt tops away to be quilted can't you - as you say a lot of heaving and shoving!


It's a lovely quilt. I'm sure it will be loved and cherished. Hope they know how much love went into it!

Your quilt is lovely and will be much appreciated I'm sure. Hope your husband will soon be feeling better.

Julie said...

Thank you Heather. I am pleased with the quilt despite the hard work making it :o) Thank you too, my husband is feeling a bit better tonight. I think he's had a reaction to something he ate yesterday, poor thing. (not my cooking by the way lol)
