Chloe's Quilt..

I got this as a kit from Ballarat patchwork... They're the ones that named it Chloe's quilt. I was a bit lazy and used left over backing fabric for the binding. I finished it a few weeks ago but I've been a little busy lately. I've had to learn a new aircraft at work and they really like you to know everything before you go on it.

I changed the pattern a bit by not doing the circles as needle turn applique. I just sewed them on so that the edges will fray.
Bernadette quilted it with lovely daisies. She always does a fabulous job.

F.Y.I. Stick your needle in some soap while your binding your quilt. The needle slides into the fabric so well. My fingers weren't nearly as sore as usual.

What a great tip - I'm suffering from a blister today from binding a quilt - sniff!
