I made a quilt! From start to finish, I made it. My mum helped a little too with piecing the top. It was gifted to my Grandma on her recent 90th birthday.
I first talked about it here. Here are the photos documenting the making of this quilt.
The backing, stuck to the floor with tape. We had to move our couch to have enough room, we do live in a very
cosy tiny apartment.
The backing, quilted.
Hand sewing on the binding.
Finished. The front.

I can honestly say the internet help make this quilt. There are so many great tutorials and so much information on the web now about quilting. So thank you, interwebs.
The good news is my Grandma loves her new quilt. It makes her nursing home room so much brighter. I feel better, knowing she has a hand made, with love, quilt to keep her warm and remind her she is so dear to us, even if we live in another country now.
I faced my fears, and I finished this quilt on time. I can honestly say I loved making this quilt. I want to make more. I now have 2 more quilts on the go and fabric collections to make another two. I want to sleep under my own hand made quilt one day (soon). I want my girls to sleep under a mumma made quilt. You could say I am a "wanna be" quilter now. That is fine with me.
Have you made a quilt? Did you enjoy it?
Happy day to you. Cat xox
