with the lovely Helen, who will work her machine quilting magic on my latest quilt.
The quilt (which I have been calling Jennie Cleland), should have been finished ages ago, but I got distracted by the Sue Spargo BOM, and well, time just slipped away.
The impending Threadbear's Applique Quilt Show gave me the kick start I needed so with the two long borders (including 320 berries) to go, I knuckled down over my summer break to see if I could make it. Not quite there (48 berries to go) but should get it to Helen a week early ....wooohooooo!!
In the meantime, I have prepared the backing (photo below) - binding and hanging sleeve can be done when the quilt is being quilted.
So fingers crossed!
I do love a dramatic backing and I think this one fits the brief.
Can't wait to get it all together.
Hope to see you at the show!
