The much blogged about MiL quilt top and back are finished AND are now being happily basted and quilted by the trusted hands of my favourite long arm quilter - hooray!!!
Good news is my MiL loves it - massive exhale of air - Here's a few pics for you ...
|With 774 squares there had to be an obligatory stained glass shot|
|I did have the odd hiccup along the way!|
|Look at those colours outdoors!|
MiL has landed on our fine shores and is currently sipping a cup of tea whilst I whip up this post. That's right, I'm a hopeless secret keeper when it comes to gifts and just had to show her the quilt top as soon as she landed (I get that from my mum - another hopeless secret gift giver - seriously folks, Secret Santa is wasted on us!)
In other news ... I have hand pieced two other Farmers Wife quilt blocks ... I give you Block 91 "Strawberry Basket"
and Block 10 "Bow Tie"
That's two more to add to the Progress Chart ... happy days!
