The big quilt ta-da moment!

I know you've all been waiting for it and if you follow me on Twitter you will be pleased that this will probably be the last you hear of it!

Some close up's now








I love the contrast between the machine stitching, my hand sewing and the big quilting stitches!




The quilting is straight on the front and wonky on the back as I don't use a quilting frame when hand quilting. Perhaps I should? These last three images are shown for scale although remember that the girls are quite small for their age (4 and 7)







The girls are quite enamoured with this quilt so I'm hoping that their faces at Christmas time when I give them their own quilts* will be just as good :)


*I have yet to start chopping up their old clothes for the said quilts but I have a plan if that helps?
