My secret sewing project is now finished and given away. You may remember seeing it like this when I was hand stitching the binding down. This quilt was being made for my friend Eileen’s older grand-daughter. I had previously made a piggy quilt for her younger sister.
I had a pile of bright blue and pink floral squares, so I made a whole lot of pin wheel blocks, adding fabrics from my stash, pale pink, blue, cream. The pinwheel blocks were then sashed in white and I bordered the quilt in bright peacock blue.
And here is the quilt, hanging outside, blowing in the breeze.
The quilt was commercially quilted using a butterfly and flower pantograph, nice and girly. Being a large king single quilt, it was too big for me to quilt at home. I do hope she likes her new quilt.
