I have enjoyed every stitch of making this quilt!! I don't know why I waiting soooo long to finish it!!
The quilt began with a Quiltalong with Lori of Humble Quilts.
The little quilt is machine pieced (a challenge for me with such tiny pieces. Those squares finish at one inch) and hand quilted.
All the main fabrics in the quilt (except the cheddar, which is Kona's school bus) are from Barbara Brackman's Civil War Homefront line. The shirting background is from New Town Farm by Windham.
I marked the straight lines with a hera maker and used tissue paper with the flower design drawn on for the flowers.
We had a bit of excited around here last night. An earthquake rumbled by!! A very unusual occurance in our part of the world. At about 5.2 on the Richter scale it was the largest to hit here in over 100 years. It started out as the sound of a strong gust of wind, then the whole house shook, lasting for more than 30 seconds. Every dog in the neighbourhood was barking!! Fortunately there was no damage here, but some people did get some slight damage.
Thank you to everyone who left birthday wishes on my last post. They are very much appreciated! :)
A couple of flowers from the garden. The cyclamen are doing very well this year.
