Yep having a patchwork/quilting happy dance today because I have, at long last, finished my first “quilt”.
This is a project I began in December 2011 at the local patchwork club I go to. All blocks are assembled by hand, and all sashing, borders and quilting is done by hand too. The only time I used the machine was to add the binding, and even then, I’ve stitched by hand on the back.
Anyway, this was a learning project. To learn the basics, and some of the more common blocks. I don’t really like some of the blocks (namely the sunbonnets and the Trapunto cottage) but now that the quilt is finished, I have to admit that I am pleased with it, and even the sunbonnets and Trapunto do have a certain charm ^^
and details of some of the quilting
Finished piece measures 90cm square. Not terribly big, but big enough for a first project ^^
