Round Robin Quilt Finished!
Thanks to being glued to my seat on the lounge this week watching MasterChef, I have managed to finish sewing the binding down on my Round Robin quilt top and so, apart from the very important label, I have finished!
Yesterday the girls and I walked over to our local park to take some photos. That's our house just across the lake!
What do they say? Never work with children or animals? Grace was fantastic behind the quilt holding it up despite a strong breeze blowing. All was good until Matilda decided to help.
I love how they think it is totally normal to go to the park to photograph a quilt with their Mum. Isn’t that what every one does on a Sunday morning?
Lots of giggling later I think I got my shot.
It measures about 50 inches square. I’d say I would have used at least 2,000 metres of thread. I was using bobbin fill for the bobbin thread and I went through a 1,500 reel. About 500 metres was on other projects previously, lets just say I used a lot of thread…. But worth it as I’m really happy with how it has turned out.
After we took these photos we wandered down closer to the lakes edge and saw this guy just hanging in the sun.
