Amidst the chaos of the dust and the workmen
I have managed somehow to finish my shoofly...
..on time as well.
This quilt was always destined for my friend Karen.
Whose 40th birthday was on Sunday.
Anyone who knows her will know that she is crazy about butterflies,
hence forth I give you
The fabrics are a mix of old and new,
with a splash of butterfly.
My first choice of backing and quilting did not go so well.
The decision to unpick was made
and a manic dash into town thankfully produced the new backing
and some matching bonus binding
all in one package.
(regards TKMaxx and Kirstie Allsopp bedding)
I fell back on some fmq
as my straight lines were causing me a headache.
Loopy quilting is so much fun..and I only caught the backing in once!
So there we are one very special kingsize quilt,
with an added subliminal message quilted in.
All wrapped up and ready to go!
ps. she loved it.
pps. the workmen have finished, just the decorating to do now!
