a finish!!!!

Well as I suspected - my quilting genes have returned - see previous posts!  As I have not been having the best of times lately, Ive been feeling I need to get back to what I used to love doing - and one of those things is quilting.  So.....to cut a long story short, dug out this quilt top that I hate to think how long ago was made and proceeded to machine quilt, bind and label it.  Yes the purists would say it should have been handquilted but I dont care!  Its a lovely quilt and I just wanted it done.  It looks lovely hung over my sewing machine.  And the roll on continues - found a table runner that just needs some blanket stitch embroidery on some flowers and leaves and binding and then it is done!  For your knitters dont despair - knitting is STILL being done as well.

Di, that quilt is magnificent! So glad you didn't let it languish in the drawer any longer - it deserves to be on display and you should be so proud of yourself for your beautiful work! xx

Good for finding your mojo - it is a great start! Hugs, xxxx
