My blogging buddies quilt finally comes together



Well here it is, finally! I'm thrilled to be able to show you my finished quilt!
The fabric is a Moda range called Nostalgia, which a touch of
French General and calico. I absolutely love it to bits!



I've kept the quilting light, quilting in the ditch all over. You may of noticed there is no stippling in this quilt, and I am sure it feels much softer for it.



To all of you who made a wee stitchery for this quilt, I am sending you a big hug and a special thank you. This will be a special quilt for a long time, of that I'm sure!



The back is just plain, as this will end up hanging on a wall, I just have to make a label to stitch to the back explaining how it came to be.

What do you think of the finished quilt??

Thank you!
Carole :))
