It's wonderful to be able to share another finished quilt. The top was only done at the beginning of February so not too bad really! A gift for my frolleague, my #2, who works hard, makes me laugh and loves my (quilting) work!
Inspired by a photo she sent me of the HST rug she had bought for her new conservatory, I selected mainly Makower Spraytimes, with a few Kona Solids and other plain fabrics from my stash:
Each HST was trimmed to 5.5" and pinned to within an inch of its life - still didn't give me 100% perfect points, but I can live with that:
A few more photos:
Binding - is it really like Marmite? Well, I LOVE it!
I didn't clock how much time this took to make but Mandy asked so I tried to calculate and I would estimate at least 50 hours. She loved it! I do believe her eyes were a little moist when I gave it to her on Monday ... bless! That's why we do what we do, hey?
