Quilt

First there was this lovely bundle of fabrics.
Then through the course of an afternoon they became this.
Now they are this.
I have to now practice my free motion quilting. Lorraine from Hettie's Patch has made the same quilt and she is much cleverer than I, she has done the most beautiful roses. So I have some practicing to do.

That looks lovely Leanne! Good luck with the quilting - that's a skill I have yet to master! I can see my father-in-law's quilt just being "buttoned" together!!! Lucy x

Your quilt looks gorgeous, good luck with the quilting. I have never mastered machine quilting - it frustrates me so much! Looks like you had a great time at Normanville, my inlaws live down that way - it's such a lovely place. Happy stitching, Georgette.
