A finish!

Yes it is finished, and gifted too!

I am so pleased I finished it on time and I really loved how it turned out. I had picked the 30 blocks I wanted to make out of the 45 in the book but I hadn't planned the fabric at all. I just want with my stash and with what took my fancy so it is a very scrappy quilt and a bit of an explosion of colour! I bought the white for the sashing to bind it all together. So this month I finished the last 8 blocks that I was missing to get to 30. The last one (the pumpkin, which needed 30 different orange fabrics, not my strongest colour!) was finished on Sunday!

I assembled the top on Monday night while hubby was putting the quilting frame together and loaded the quilt ready for quilting on Tuesday night. I used an allover flower design inspired by The Inbox Jaunt and used Aurifil thread to quilt it.

And the only thing that was left was the binding, which I finished yesterday.

  1. Great quilt! I love the bold variety in both the colors and the block designs. It doesn't look like everyother Sample block quilt! Congrates!

  2. I received this quilt from Celine. I twas such a wonderful gift for my retirement from childminding. Celine had included so many squares that showed my time spent looking after her three wonderful children. I will treasure it for ever. Soo
