This is a quilt I made quite a few years ago, her name is 'Shabby Rose' (I find my quilts take on personalities of their own and therefore always need names). I had originally planned something else and was going to do the piecing by hand while training for my job. I managed about half of the squares by hand and then changed what I was doing and machined this instead. I have it on my bed most of the time and am really happy with it. It was quilted by Jenny Carmichael of Bayside Quilting.
It's my most favourite of quilts I've done for myself but maybe that's because I haven't finished that many for myself....yet.
I've been doing some machine quilting over the last few days. I'm making a lap quilt for my step-mum for her birthday. It's coming together well but I do wish I had a machine with a bigger throat. I hate having to shove (I don't do it delicately) the quilt through each time I change direction. Time for a hot chocolate and then back to the machine....
