On Friday evening the last 2 stitchery blocks of my United Stitches quilt were machined into place. All the "fabric" blocks had been made several weeks ago, and as each row was finished it was machined into place. Finally row 9 was completed!. This this gorgeous BOM is by Rosalie Dekker Designs and was bought from Under The Mulberry Tree in Australia. The quilt top has been hand embroidered with Cosmo threads and hand appliquéd, and the fabrics are from the "Chirpy Lola" collection, also designed by Rosalie. I'd bought the border and binding pack (also from Under The Mulberry Tree) simply ages ago. I was so excited to get this machined in place at last, and so glad that I'd made each row as I went along, as sewing all these 4.5" blocks together would've been a mammoth task...
...as you can see it was rather blustery when I took some photographs in the garden on Saturday morning! I can't believe it was back in Feb 2015 when the first stitchery block and the fabrics arrived all the way from Australia - I have absolutely loved every stitch in this beautiful quilt! As usual, this is will be going for a little holiday with my wonderful longarm quilter Janette at J-Quilts (she really does do the most amazing work!) and she will work her usual magic with her superb custom quilting.
Hi - welcome to my quilting blog! My passions are my family, my dog, my friends and sewing, not necessarily in that order!
