Finally, I have finished a quilt. Looking back, I think the last real quilt that I finished was in 2007. That’s terrible. Hopefully I’ll be a little more prolific in the future.
As I have shared, this quilt was started back in July 2010 and has languished until early this year, when I finally put on the borders and had my friend Val quilt it. She did some lovely quilting and the design really suited the fabric.
We collected it from Val on Australia Day, and finally, 20 months after it was started, it is finished.
It is really quite a simple quilt. Just square in a square.
I added the spare blocks to the backing.
I just used a bamboo batting that came with a magazine subscription. It has a very low loft, but we only want a light quilt in the camper trailer, nothing too bulky. It will be interesting to see how it wears.
It will also make a nice picnic rug.
It isn’t to be a precious quilt, rather one that gets plenty of use.
It was fun taking photos in the evening light down on the old hay rake in the front yard.
The size is possibly a bit big for the camper, but we will have plenty of tuck in. It actually fits on the top of our queen size bed.
As you may be able to tell, I’m a tad excited to actually finish something.
Thanks for indulging me. By the way, a big finish for OPAM.
