The Finished Article

Right, here we go...... I am refreshed after my cup of tea and ready to show off my finished quilt! I really tried my hardest not to be too lazy and i started to quilt between all the triangles (Of course I regretted it after the first row but glad I stuck with it as I like the look overall).

The backing fabric is covered in little robots, spacemen and spaceships and is so cute for Sam. I'm going to have to get some more of it, it's so great! And look at this next picture, after reading up on many, many blogs and tutorials about how to make and bind a quilt I did it, my proudest moment haha! 

So that's it, my first finished quilt! A huge thanks to Shannon aka (Auntie Cookie) for the quilt-a-long, it's been a great learning curve, got me being slightly creative again and I think I've got the bug - I'm going to try another quilt, maybe even to my own pattern - watch this space. 

Oh and if you want to see everyone else's quilts then take a look at the Flickr group here.

  1. This quilt is gorgeous - looks like it would've involved lots of fabric-wrestling though! I saw your work at the Maggie's Christmas Bazaar and thought it was lovely. Looked like you'd caught the quilting bug! Caroline x
