I have just finished my second quilt ever! A rosy lap quilt! It's only taken me a year due to manky hands interuptus!
I am waiting for my last hand op and going through a bit of a good patch so I got my sewing out! It felt so good to be doing something!!! Although I have to take it steady and stop as soon as I get fizzling (pins and needles) slowly but surely I managed to finish her...my Winter Rose quilt.
Fiver loves sitting on it and often jumped up while I was sewing!
It's so lovely and snuggley.It's quite a heavy weight quilt as its made from upholstery or curtain fabric samples, but its thick and warm and will be robust enough to be taken to picnics and beaches in the summer and used as a rug!
I have always dreamed of making quilts and now I have finished two!!!
One I sewed completely by hand....but this one , I did the patchwork by hand and the quilting by machine........
Although I bound it by hand............it's been a long hard slog due to my bad hands......
But well worth it and I LOVE IT!!!!!
