finally more quilts!

ok i have been really slack on posting about my quilt making successes (and failures!) so thought maybe it was about time i updated! i have just finished our quilt and i LOVE it! it is almost a perfect fit for a queen bed, but since i dont use a pattern, or measure anything, i came a little under...but not to worry, there just isnt as much overhang as i would like, but other than that, it does the job! i used, gee i think 3 in the end, Moda Nest charm packs and backed with this lovely hhmmm what would you call it- Jade maybe, fabric. this was used for the sashing and borders too...very plain really. no binding or anything flash, but i love the fabric line, so i dont think it needed much else... here are some shots!

Kalan helping with the sandwiching

pins, pins and more pins!

starting the actual quilting..i went with a criss cross through each square...nice and easy considering the size of the quilt!!

what a cute helper!

and he even matched a little too :o )

the finished result!!

and again...i really love it!

and a very irresistible foot x
bye for now....
