TTS finished!

Finished last night, Tis The Season! While in bed last night, I realised I forgot to take some pics and blog!

Anyway, I am pretty happy with it, actually LOVE it!

Here is a close up of my hand quilting. I really enjoy this part! Dennis says I am mad.... I have a long arm, and I choose to hand quilt lol!




I quilted in the centre of each border surrounding the stitchery, and 1/4" from each edge of the border:



I really like the feel of a hand quited quilt, it felt quite snugly while binding it the other night!


Thanks to all the SAL girls for their inspiration..... If you have not gone and seen some of these quilts, I suggest you do. There is some amazing quilts made!

Your quilt looks fabulous. I love the fabric you chose. I'm onto my fourth or fifth block and after seeing your lovely hand quilting, I've been inspired to finish mine in the same way!

TTS looks so gorgeous! Beautiful hand quilting; and I think it must be a husband/technology thing. My dh can't understand why I hand stitch when my machine will do embroidery, he even wants buttons ewn on by machine! LOL men!
