    hearts quilt finished

    My Hearts Quilt for my son and his parner is finished! Its the first full isze quilt I've ever mad and I have to say that I'm very pleased with the way it turned out. Its hand pieced then machine quilted. I'm a new quilter so didn't feel confident enough to try to squeeze a full isze quilt into my machine. I made it inot stripts, quilted each strip then joined them using quilt as you go method.
    There are loads of mistakes - but I've learned heaps by doing it and loved (mostly) every stitch.

    They don't know about it and are coming over for dinner tonight and I'll give it to them then. I must admit I'llbe quite sad to see it go after working on it most nights and weekends for the last 5 months.

    I've tried to attach pictures but I'm not sure if i've managed.

                            What a gorgeous quilt! You've just jolted me out of my slump, maybe :-). Beautiful work - my first quilts were hand pieced and very first were also hand quilted. What a labor of love. Your fabric choices are yummy!

                            Can't wait to hear the reaction - make sure you share!
