You might like to see where Vera's last resting place might be. It's a little glass house that I found in Matalan a while ago. I am going to put some paper behind the back glass panel so it's not see through and no doubt she will get some comany over time.
Anyways, on to the quilt I have been making this week.
I really needed to make room in my stash cupboard as everything falls out when the door was opened and daughter wanted a quilt to put on her chair in her bedroom. So perfect opportunity to kill two birds with one stone!
Here is the start. Just 'simple' squares.
Here it is underneath the sewing machine. I decided to have a go at machine stitching instead of hand as it was a smaller quilt than the others I made. To say it was a squash to get it all underneath was an understatement!
This is what it looked like before the quilting marathon began.
Back view.....which was a single sheet that I picked up in the charity shop. Isn't it a gorgeouuuus colour. The pink really pops out, also, I had a spare strip of patchwork from the front and so included it on the back.
With an added label....
The stripey zebra binding was a piece of fabric that I found in another charity shop. The patchwork squares look like a stained glass window in real life. Nice and bright and cheery. Smaller quilt than the others I've made but it's not for the bed so that's OK. I don't know whether to quilt the sashing or not. Can I face squishing it under the machine again!!
Here is this weeks linky parties;
