A gift quilt

A little while ago, a lovely friend gave both Roseanne a HEAP of fabric, patterns and bits. I mean BAGS full! She used to be a quilter, but lost her mojo for quite a while and decided to give it all away. I was lucky enough to find 3 quilt tops in one of my bags full. This one was partly quilted. So, we secretly decided to un-pick it and put it together for her as a 'thankyou'!

Here it is, all finished! Made from an old range by 3 Sisters called Wuthering Heights: I quilted it using Too Many Bubbles pattern, as when she made this quilt, she had visions of circles:


I then handed it over to Roseanne who bound it! So all in all, it was a group effort. Sorry, I didn't take a pic of the label but it read : A friendship quilt, pieced by Kristy, quilted by Sarah, bound by Roseanne. Made with love.




We are glad that Kristy got a surprise! And, it matches her new decor perfectly too!




Now, the question is..... is this MY finish as I DID put label on OR is it Roseanne's finish as she did the binding?

What a wonderful thing you both did for a friend. I love the bubbles quilting, do you mind if I ask you what type of machine you did that on and did you use a panto?
