First quilt finish in 2015!!
Well this has to be a record for me at least anyway. My lovely daughter Kate and Ruby took me out to buy fabric on 23rd December as a birthday treat. I was given the choice of where I wanted to go and as I hadn't been to the Sewing Space in Hythe that's where we went. I bought a metre each of four different fabrics for a bright and cheerful quilt. Of course it being so close to Christmas all I could do was look at it, there simply wasn't any spare time to get in the sewing room until 27th when I was able to snatch a few hours to start cutting and piecing. I decided on a simple rail fence design as the fabric was so pretty and busy I didn't want to detract from it. Once pieced and sandwiched I had my first real attempt at free motion quilting something larger than a cushion, and whilst it's far from perfect I am more than happy with it.
