Firstly let me apologise for the quality of these photos. I had dreams of taking my quilt tops out to the park and photographing them in the sunlight but it has been rainy and miserable all week so I have just photographed them in my flat. They are a bit dark as a result.
Anyhow first up is the FMF. All basted and quilted by little old me. The binding is about a quarter done, there will be a few evenings of hand-stitiching in front of the telly for me to finish it up.
I have backed the whole quilt with pink eyelet yumminess! Thank goodness for the re-issue of Flea Market Fancy
Is it ever possible to get a quilt picture without a cat?
Next up I sewed together all my string blocks to make this massive quilt, it is absolutely HUGE!!!
I photographed this quilt hanging from my wardrobe and it drapes on the floor it is so big.
This is going to the longarm quilter to be quilted. I initially thought I would quilt it myself and even bought the wadding but when I realised how big it was I decided there was no way I could manage it in my little machine. I am just trying to decide what fabric I should use to back it - any suggestions?
Thanks to Charlotte for letting me know that her string quilt had solid strips that were not quite straight but looked good in the end. That really encouraged my to finish it up and she is right, I can tell it is not perfect but I overall I am really pleased with it.
