Quilt finished!


Bad picture - good quilt I believe. A disappearing nine patch quilt for my very very cute seven year old nephew Anushka! I am now in the middle of doing one for my other nephew a more grown up 13 year old!!

The quilting took a back seat whilst I was in Australia - but hopefully it will now restart despite the huge backlog of work in office, work at the orphanages and general work!!! I don't seem to be able to get over it completely despite being almost a month back.

I have won at two fabric giveaways and am eagerly awaiting this as well. I have said we don't have jelly rolls, charm squares and layer cakes in Sri Lanka so winning these is a double delight.

The quilt is beautiful. Many, many years ago a friend and I started one but didn't get far. I often think how I wish we had finished it.

What a lovely gift, and such a nice thing for your nephew to use for his children, and then for them to use for this children, and so on. I read the Little House books over December/January, and it always mentioned working on a nine patch quilt. It is lovely to see what one looks like.

Beautiful quilt. I can see how much time and patience went into this. Few really appreciate how much work is involved in quilting. I love it. A woman after my own heart!
