1st finished quilt... YAY!!!


As requested... My very first finished quilt on my bed. I never knew that it would take sooo long to bind it. I stayed up til 2am one night and a few days later watched 8 episodes of "Love My Way" (an australian drama) while trying to finish it off. Although it did keep me warm while doing it. I did have it draped over my couch for a few days so i could marvel at my work.
I have 2 more quilt tops with backing ready to go to Bernadette when i see her on Saturday. I just need to pick out some egde-to-edge quilting patterns and wait for Bern to do her magic. I did learn a very important lesson when putting together my backing fabric. When buying from America... A yard is less than a Metre... So i had to buy some material to make the backing longer to go on the Quilting machine. Lesson learnt...
I'm also half way through Quilting my "Bears In The Heavens" Cot quilt myself. But just so you know... there will be NO close up pics when it is done..
I'm now away again for 4 days... So at least now I'll get a chance to try and finish reading "The book Thief" by Markus Zusak. Great book so far..
