The Big Flower gets Quilted!

Easter is a perfect time for eating chocolate and quilting. They go hand and hand really as they are 2 of my favourite things.

This Easter I had the time to quilt my Big Flower quilt that I had been putting off. The stippling is a little dodgy as the old sewing machine's tension has decided it's too old to behave, but we managed in the end. Ended up stippling flower chains in the 16 square patches and echo lines int he flowers and leave. I'm really happy with the end effect. A few dodgy lines but......gives it character.















My lovely lounge loves it's present.

well done - looks great!

Absolutely! Just one flaw - having to make sure my fingers are clean after each egg to get back to the quilt!

Very nice indeed. I am a big fan of red myself. I am impressed you have quilted this yourself, I am not sure if I am game to quilt my patch project myself. Have enjoyed getting into a few projects over easter too, including copying Vanessa's gorgeous green jean bag.

Love Raelene
