I set myself a goal of finishing Chloe's Good Fortune quilt Thursday - and by 11am it was done and dusted! Admittedly, it only had the binding left to do, but I was so happy to have it finished. Not half as happy as the little girl waiting outside my sewing room door!
Here it is - the biggest quilt I have made to date!
|It had only just poured with rain, so I had to be careful at which angles I took the photos! This is obviously in full sun, but I love that you can see the FMQ detail. For those interested, I followed Samelia's Mum's tutorial HERE. It was VERY easy to follow! I used a layer cake of Kate Spain's Good Fortune, and white Homespun for the top, and a lighter shade of grey Homespun for the back.|
|And in the shadows. I'm SOOOOO happy with how straight it all looks! Well, from this far away anyway!|
|The bright purple binding works beautifully. So thank you to everyone who gave me their opinion a while back!|
|I can't get enough of all the different colours in this range.|
|And my very happy little four year old, who promptly wrapped herself up in her quilt and told me it was the most beautiful quilt ever! A little bit after taking this photo, I brought out some fabrics to photograph that I'd just received in the mail. Chloe quipped "they won't be as beautiful as mine Mummy". Bless.|
