There are ends to bind and loose threads needing to be removed, but for all intents and purposes this quilt is finished! What started out life as a not very attractive woollen blanket, is now known as the happy quilt. It was a huge effort, finished today in testing circumstances with a busy two year old running around the house...
The piece was so big, I found it dragging as I sewed it on to the blanket top. I moved my sewing machine to the floor instead and used my knee to operate the pedal! Very unconventional, but it worked! My back is aching now, though, I must admit. I am walking around like an old woman!
The back - I am in two minds as to whether I will cover this. Not doing anything til my back stops aching from today's efforts!
And last night I learnt how to make granny squares. I can't believe I found a tutorial I could actually understand - thanks to Heather at Little Tin Bird. Heather is a genius at explaining how to do things, she is if I can understand them! I'm not keen on my colours there, it was more about the technique.
Anyway, chaos ensues, must sign off and hope I will have more granny squares to show you tomorrow - in much better colour ways!
