What do you think?
I edged it in red, so all I need to do now, is sandwich it, quilt it and bind it. That should take me a few days, fitting it in around everything else, but I'm so pleased to finally have a finish!
Also, last Sunday (19th June) I went to the National Quilt Championships at Sandown Park. This year, there was a fabulous array of different quilts, all different styles, all different techniques and some of the work was exquisite, from hand quilted to hand pieced, I was in awe and totally inspired by what I saw. Here are a few from that show (none of these quilts are mine, credit goes to the maker)
I loved this one, mainly because I adore purple, but all the cathedral windows had been hand-sewn and then it was machine-quilted. So rich, beautifully scalloped edges, too.
But this one was my favourite and as you can see, it got two rosettes. The colour was very oceanic and I could totally see this design painted on a ceiling. The attention to detail was astounding.
It was a great quilty weekend and I can't wait for next year's!
