Well, it has been a long time in the making, but here is my Siblings Together charity quilt quilted and bound! Tracey from TeePee Quilts did her bit very professionally and quickly. She sent me back my quilt beautifully wrapped up in sheets and sheets of pink tissue paper. It was a joy to open and very exciting. It has taken me, however, over a week to add the binding and sew the label on!
In my normal style, I managed to spill white white over my half yard of Kona Pomegranate cotton reserved for the binding whilst trying to find my walking foot in my sewing basket! Thankfully I was able to rinse it out and iron it dry. I really should take my own advice sometime!
Anyhow, I am very pleased with the result and it was such a treat to have this quilt long arm quilted and I can completely recommend Tracey, who, I might add, not only donated her services but also the wadding for the quilt.
So, the details…. All fabric used for the quilt top is ‘Garden Wall’ by Laura Gunn. The backing is from Ikea (budget slightly tight, but it goes okay I think and it was wide enough to accommodate the extra 4″ all round required for long arming) and Kona Pomegranate for the binding.
I hope it brings a someone a smile at the next Siblings Together camp!
Thanks for reading!
