Made in Cherry Quilt is Finished!

Quilting:


I'm excited I have finally managed to get my Made in Cherry quilt finished and I just love it!


This was my first quilt along - which I started back here and here ....mmm I must work on actually sticking to the quilt along steps next time I join to keep the momentum. 

But I'm mostly just ecstatic to finish a quilt and am not so worried about the 'how' or 'how long'...

I machine quilted this quilt as I want to use it in the living room for every day use. I quilted across each square and then did some basic sewing around the outside to reflect the star outline in the grey background.


I generally like to use what I have in the cupboard for quilt backings. Nice and simple and great way to use up some more of my stash!


I'm so in love with this quilt and I'm pleased to say that apart from the buying the wadding and the binding I used only fabrics I already had.

Right - now back to a little more hand quilting - but first here are a few 'action' shots which will explain why I always use the clothes line to show my finished quilts! - for some reason (read 'my two year old - Thom') they just won't stay flat on the bed!

Note: Please don't Pin or use the image of Thom in any way - I'm more than happy for the other images to be used with appropriate recognition given.
