Quite finished quilt

Unbelievably, I’ve finished my quilt. I’m so, pleased. Many moons ago I read an article about making a quilt in a weekend. Ha! I can do that I thought. I can do a random pattern of stripes, use up all (ha) my scraps, make it look like a sea and do wavy free form quilting.

Well, it kind of meets that expectation except, most definitely the weekend bit! I know its been a while because the photographic evidence goes back 18 months and they weren’t taken when I started. I feels like four years but lets just settle for somewhere in the middle.

Anyway, here it is…

Raw edges and stitching in progress.

Work in progress, detail of strips, up-cycled fabrics including the odd remaining button…

Phew! All done and very satisfying. Light weight and perfect for a spring/autumn boost.
