The Wedding Quilts are all complete...
Yesterday was M&A's wedding and I finished their quilt at about 9am the same day. It's a double-wedding ring pattern, but I can't claim credit for the patchwork. I bought the hand-pieced quilt top on e-Bay a few years ago (from a girl in Kentucky if I remember correctly). I don't know if the seller was the maker. I backed the quilt with a green gingham and the wadding is unbleached cotton. The white bits are all hand quilted in a cross-hatch pattern. The coloured arcs are machine quilted along the outline to give the quilt a bit more definition (in a limited timeframe!). C made the bias binding from a green and white cotton print.
Today I'm enjoying the luxury of not feeling like I have to do anything. I've baked a banana cake, pulled out my fabric stash to have a little look at what I've got, had a little snooze... and that's about it really. Bliss!
