I picked this quilt up from the quilters this morning...isn't it sweet? I have been working on this quilt for literally years, which is a little embarrassing considering how small it is! I originally started making it for Lydia, and it will remain Lydia's, even though she now has two quilts, and poor Merryn doesn't have any :( ...guess I had better get moving on a quilt for Merryn!
For those non-quilters who read, a word of explanation. I stitched and pieced the top of the quilt, and then took it to a professional quilter who put the top onto a layer of batting (the woolly stuff in the middle that makes it warm) and a backing (the bottom layer). She then used a machine to stitch all the wavy lines (called stippling) on top to hold all the layers together, and now I need to put a binding on it (the bit that goes around the outside edge of the quilt). Since the binding is scalloped and may take a few days, I decided to share it today!
In other news...one of my LOs has been accepted to the Basic Grey gallery! A bit exciting for me, as it is the first time I have submitted anything to anywhere...don't know what came over me, really :). It's the LO of Lydia a few posts down...in case you don't have time to check it out LOL.
Back into all the after school activities this week, so I had better get organised...
