we are working on Something Old
and with the Quilting we are going to make it something New ")
Leonie H of Kingaroy
made this gorgeous Quilt 20 yrs ago
and made an attempt to Hand Quilt it,
but found it wasn't for her..I first met Leonie at the Nanango Markets...
she said that it had been patiently waiting in her cupboard
to get finished...
this is what I love about what I do
I get to finish these quilts so they can see the light of day
the Quilt still had the Basting stiches in the quilt so we had to remove all them too ...My Eldest Daughter helped me
So then it was on the to Quilting today we are doing some In-Ditch stitching and stipple on the outer border using a cream thread and a lot of Ruler work
it took 6 hrs to quilt in the end
it looks soo puffy as she used a
High Loft wadding...the pictures
don't do it justice at all...
I think a photography coarse might be
in order LOL
anyway here are the pictures
of the finished Quilt
Now onto the Next Quilt
Happy Quilting ") N
