Quilting project is now done & dusted!

You may have been following along with my posts before Christmas on how I had decided to make a Miss 13 a quilt for her bed.  Having no previous quilting experience I chose to wing it and create as I went along. It was wrapped and under the Christmas tree in the dying hours but it was well worth all the effort.


 It is very light weight, which is perfect for our hot Australian summers.


I made my own binding and used a large quilt backing so I didn't need to join it.
I have caught the bug and have so many other projects now in mind.

Thank you so much everyone for your lovely comments xx

Jane, the grand plan was to use fabrics from my stash but in typical teenage fashion she didn't like many of them so I said she could only choose cheap cotton florals from Spotlight! But they did all go together really nicely.
