Finally, a ta-dah post is here!! It would have been here last week but I am without internet!! I had no idea just how much I use it, I am missing it soooo much! So, today I am at Poppy Cottage, borrowing internet! Hopefully our new router should arrive soon and then normal internetting shall resume!
I have actually managed to completely finish 2 projects, so another ta-dah post will be coming really soon J
But for today, I’ll stick with just the one. Because it’s a big one. My quilt is finished!!
I started a ‘beginner’s sampler quilt’ course way back in October and my quilt has slowly grown, block by block over almost 6 months.
We used the quilt-as-you-go method, so until very recently I just had a pile of blocks, nothing that looked quilt sized! But now, it is massive.
The light in our house, unless the sun actually shines brightly, is terrible, so I brought my quilt to Poppy Cottage to be photographed (and to show it off to my parents!). Mum took the photos for me on her fancy camera, as I had only brought my little camera, which doesn’t seem to like the colours of my quilt and just makes it look grey and ucky.
So here it is, 6 months in the making…………
I have still got to embroider a label and sew it on to the back, but other than that it is totally, completely finished!! I am so happy! Also, I am very glad that I was stubborn about my fabric choices. Quite a lot of people (ladies in the fabric shop included) tried to persuade me to bring in another colour, but I had a very clear idea of what I wanted and it has turned out beautifully! I did add green to the back of the quilt though, a little surprise when you turn it over!!
So that’s it for ta-dah-ing today. I will be back with another ta-dah and lots of other project updates soon! Hopefully our internet will be back with us soon, I miss blog-land so much!!
