Secret Sewing Finished

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.

Binding time

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.

Oh my, this quilt is a most beautiful finish, Jenny. Love those pretty prints and the butterflies flitting everywhere in the quilting is sublime. Such a gorgeous quilting pattern.

Another beautiful quilt. I don't know how you are so productive. We have gone from a nice warm summer to loads of rain and now we're back to very hot with temperatures in the 30's so hot I can't even pick up a crochet hook! Love the latest finish.
