squares is finished
Squares is finished, it was a pleasure to make - completed last night. The only fabric I purchased was for the binding. Everything else as previously mentioned was from the stash, a dent has been made which I'm very happy about. I decided against more quilting, I think it would have been too much - I'm really happy with the outcome. The binding was hand finished, I did do stage 1 of the binding with the machine - the machine has this thing behind the foot which feeds the top at the same rate as the bottom making sewing several layers a breeze, no need for a walking foot. No regrets at all about spending a little more on wool batting, I love the look and feel of the finished product.
I had a helper this morning, bells was keen to get the photos done so it could be put on her bed. A happy little girl this morning when I told her her new quilt was finished. "Hurry up mumma I need to put it on my bed now!"
and now flip would like a new quilt.....
