Well my first "proper" quilt is finally finished. I've never made anything larger than cot quilt size before, and this one is a topper for a single bed, made from a combination of some pre-cut 6" squares I purchased a couple of years ago, and some coordinating fabrics from my stash.
It's not perfect by any means; I'm still very much a beginner when it comes to quilting and I'm sure the quilt police probably wouldn't like it. Frankly I don't really care, as it will more than serve its purpose which is primarily to keep me warm, and secondly it looks pretty.
This is the first time I've actually added a separate binding to a quilt, rather than using what some describe as the "cheat's" method of using excess backing to self-bind. I'm also extremely proud of the fact that the entire back of the binding was hand-stitched in place, in the traditional way. It took me 5 hours to stitch the binding, but I have to say I'm very pleased with the quilt overall. Wobbles and all.
Until next time. x
