Way back here I told you about a quilty Christmas project that I had started.
As you know, nothing happens very quickly around here.
There's lots of faffing around,
Particularly if the project is a little difficult.
After I got the main part together then came the border
and putting together the "sandwich".
I used about 100 safety pins to hold it all together and then I started quilting "in the ditch"
with very limited success !
After a lot of unpicking I finally came to the conclusion that if I wasn't going to destroy all that hard work I should stop at quilting the vertical lines.
I decided it needed more to give it some depth, so I set about to try hand quilting the rest.
I was truely sick of the whole thing by then so I plunged right in.
No hoop as I see I should have done .....
( like Kath at Hillside Cottage )
No ruled lines.
Just get it done !!
So here's the final effort.
Ta Dah !
I'm rather pleased with it.
Quite a learning project.
A character building exercise !!
I'm sending it off to Mum.
She'll love it
( 'cos she loves me !!!)
