So glad to have this one finished - Double X quilt - a gift for my niece's September wedding.
We've had some lovely, much-needed rain so this is the best I could do for a garden photo - very careful to keep the quilt clean and dry!
|1.33m square (53 inches square)|
I kept the quilting simple - hoping it would suit her taste. It was easy to manage by machine with the walking foot. The quilt is a rarity for me in that it is totally machine made - pieced and quilted (oh - except for hand hemming of the binding). The piecing was done rather infrequently so it took quite a while to complete..little doses bit by bit!
Something else that is slow going, but very enjoyable, is my hand applique (needleturn) of the Ann Randoll sawtooth edges - two edges on each border - fiddly but fun. As the borders get bigger on a medallion quilt - so does the workload! I am getting the sawtooth edges done first and then will fill in the middle of the border strips with hexagons and applique flowers.
Back to some more prep...
