ONLY A PEEK

Look what has arrived today.



Yes, it's the quilt!
Sally's quilt back from the quilting lady.


The backing is the colour of her bedroom walls.
It's one of those special backing materials that are wide enough so there are no joins.


Here's a little peek at the top.


I chose a swirly all over pattern for the quilting.


You can see it better when I don't use the flash even though it loses all the colour.


Tomorrow I'll be showing it off to my quilting group and there'll be a few hands to hold it up for a  proper photo so you'll have to wait till then to see the whole thing.

Cheers.
