I finally have ANOTHER finished quilt to show you! This one took, from start to finish, 7 to 8 years.
Yes, it was an official UFO (Un-Finished Object)!!!
I hand embroidered these roses that
were pre-stamped on a white background.
I then made alternating 9 patch blocks with fabric that my friend Elaine had sent me....
Fabric by April Cornell - Victorian Decadence.
Once again, many, MANY thanks Elaine!!!!
Gilbert then quilted a geometric pattern,
on these blocks.
He did a small meandering around the roses...
And here's the beauty of his work...
He used a red/burgundy thread,
to do some stippling
on the rose petals!
As this quilt will be in our local quilt show this month,
I sewed a sleeve on its back, as required.
And, this afternoon, I was able to take
a picture of my finished quilt!
The quilt name?
Hope you're able to enjoy your Labour Day Weekend!
