A week of stitching, another finish

Over a week has gone by since I last posted here and I have been spurred on by that long awaited finish of Friendship's Garden to get on with some more quilting...

This beauty has been waiting for over a year to be quilted.  

It is shocking as my fabulous bee mates in Bee a Brit Stingy helped to make this and I have been a real slow poke in getting on with it.  

Reasons for the delay....

  • it is a huge big quilt - another king size, perhaps extra wide even

  • I said I would embroider details on all the siggy blocks - that is now done - with help from the lovely Lucy who did her own!

  • It is a very big quilt

  • I wanted to quilt feathers going up the diagonal rows and didn't feel that I had the skills to do it justice

Pretty pleased with this though!


  • I had thought of piecing reverse blocks for the back - gave up on that idea!

And now I can enjoy it ...because it is all done!

And now I only have four UFOs left!  Just as well I have started lots of new things isn't it...?
