Well anyway, it is her birthday tomorrow so I decided to make her a quilt after all, but not a bloody king size quilt, that is way beyond my skill set and patience. So instead she is getting this...
|I had to use pins to baste it as my safety pins have all disappeared..|
It is a lap size quilt and the photo's just don't do it justice. I couldn't get any good light here yesterday afternoon. I'll hopefully get some better photos today. I used a Ruby charm square pack, and just used white fabric for the backing, the binding is from the Sugar and Spice range.I just quilted 'in the ditch' and my free motion quilting skills are good enough to use on something that isn't just for us. Hopefully I will be confident in my free motion quilting soon, just need to get some more practice.
I am curious though, how long would it take to make a king size quilt?? And just how much material would go into one??
I am linking up with Our Creative Spaces, pop on over and enjoy all the craftiness!
