I finally pulled my finger out and finished the Daisy Quilt.
All I had left to do was to neaten my thread ends.
I added some extra daisies and even quilted a few daisies in between to appliqué.
I'm rather pleased with how this has turned out. It's already had it's first wash, (To get rid of my blue guide lines) and the edges of the flowers have already gone fluffy.
As for that batting I showed in my last post, I finally beat it into submission by tumbling it one more time with a pair of wet jeans!! It got a good half hour on a medium heat. There are still a few lumps and bumps, and a stretched area but it's so much better than it was. In future if I want a man made batting I'll stick to my dream green! (Though I do have a queen size piece to use up. I see another quilt as I go project for that one).
So the Charming Hearts quilt is all layered and ready for quilting. Unfortunately I won't have sewing machine time until Monday and Tuesday of next week, so it's folded loosely over a chair in my sewing room. It was over the top banister of the stair, but I'm awaiting delivery of a new bed today, so I moved it out of the way.
Happy Mothers day!
Tomorrow is Mother's Day for us Brits, so my hunney suggested that he take both me and my mum out for dinner tomorrow. Isn't he a sweetie. XX
