quilting the quilt. part 2.

Phew and double phew finished the quilt at long last. I first started gathering the bits together in September 2010. If ya want a reminder it's here http://highlandsockies.blogspot.com/2010/09/top-photo-is-my-stash-of-bits-for.html. From these pieces I blundered on, recording the bits that I finished on this blog as I went along. Never having made a proper quilt before I am quite pleased with meself even tho it's wibbly, wobbly in some places!! (to be honest a lot of places :0P )
Beware overload of photos!


 I chose to do a simple triangle pattern. Which I used a vanishing pen to mark the lines out. When I ran out near the end, finished up using a pencil. (gasps of horror from all the lovely proper quilters!)lol Fortunately when I put it in the washing machine on a gentle cycle (whilst holding my breath for a very long time I can tell you!) The colours didn't run and the jam, pencil and browny, yellowy marks of the invisible pen that were left behind after the invisible bit (don't now how that happened) also disappeared .






 This is before the binding was put on. Sorry about the quality of the photos.
My camera is re-charging and can't download the finished piece as yet. Will upload tomorrow.
Hope ya like it!
