Yippeee...........

It's done........ after a marathon sewing session this gorgeous sunny afternoon my quilt top is finished.
I didn't want to leave it till the week as you never know what will get in the way! I am SO happy with how it's come out, I really am 'Delighted!'
It may not be perfect, but it's my very first quilt and I couldn't be happier. As I was putting it together I was just beaming.
I still have to make a 'quilt sandwich' with the wadding and the back and actually quilt it(This is the bit that is worrying me)!!! Any quilting tips greatly appreciated.

All patterns have come from SewHappyGeek and I have to say that Jenna has created a quilt addict!! I am already thinking of my next one and which fabric and pattern I could use. Maybe something by Camille Roskelly or Aneela Hoey or both!! Just don't tell my husband....

The fabric for this quilt is Delighted! by The Quilted Fish at Riley Blake

Here it is in the last of this afternoons sun.
I'm off to enjoy a glass of wine while I keep staring at the quilt top and wonder how do I quilt it!!

  6. Yeah I can comment on your blog I haven't been able to lately hence the test as I keep writing out long comments and than losing them but yeah I'm back and I can comment on all your wonderful crafts. I am so jealous of your quilting skills I am still going on a simple quilt I started ages ago. I love the hexagons too they look stunning on the bed. All the colours just work so perfectly together. xx
