Quilty Garden

Well, I finally finished the Garden Song quilt top, gave it to Mum to quilt, and here it is.

Mum, the quilting is truly beautiful. Thank you so much!

I need to sew on the additional buttons (that just MAKE it!!), and I started sewing on the binding...

but I want to take it off. I used a thinner batting this time, and I need to adjust the seam allowance. I machine-stitched the entire binding on, and hand-stitched about an eighth of the binding onto the back before I realised I don't like it.

So... this will drag on a little longer, until I have the energy and patience to unpick!! (Actually, all I really need is time)....

A complete photo of the finished quilt will follow... eventually. *grin*
