Ad's Birthday Quilt.

I took these photos last week but have only just remembered to blog them. When this quilt was presented to its new owner, my camera batteries died so I didn't get any shots of it finished, I was sewing the label on the back as we drove down to her house! Must say I was quite proud of my stippling, the flowers were fun to do, and I think you can just make out in the below photo, I "wrote" around the corners. "Happy Birthday Aunty Ad" and then all our names on the other corner.



It looks wavy here as I was trying to be a bit artistic taking the shots outside. Bumpy grass = bumpy quilt! Anyway, quilt no #2 finished and blogged for the year!

Such a lovely quilt Helen! Your freehand quilting is awesome. I might just have to have another go at a quilt - don't feel like making a sewing girls' trip to Brissy, do you?!

So this is what it looks like (the quilting). I'm planning to have a similar pattern but mine will be pansies (it was during my second day of FMQ class).
