Finished


When I am making a quilt it seems to go on for ages, in a flurry of activity I pick it up a few nights in a row then leave it somewhere for a few weeks. It can go on like that for months, then all of a sudden the last hand stitch is done and its time to trim and finish the edges and then two hours later its finished! I always wash and dry after making so I can get that vintage used look - the fabrics and stitches shrink a tiny bit and I get the crumpled look I like. This quilt is a floor quilt for newborn twin girls, they will fit on together easily and maybe it will be kept as a momento of those early days. Now back to finish my lavender Amour hearts ready for the market on September 3rd.
