Here is the finished quilt. I really enjoyed making it, as it was fun choosing the fabrics for the various people, and quite a challenge to make it up, to get it square and flat! I have put people's names and dates of birth next to them, for future reference, using a Pigma pen, and quilted with my favourite meander with hearts.
Here is a close-up of me, where you can see the details. I just quilted round each figure, as I didn't want to obscure them.
There is another reason for the 'Hooray!' as this is my 100th post! I can hardly believe it, but would like to say a big thank you to Jane who encouraged me to become a blogger in the first place, and all the lovely people I have met on the way.
As a thank you, I will be giving away a copy of 'Patchwork Quilt tsushin' (it's all in Japanese, but the pictures and diagrams are very clear), four blue batik fat eighths and a surprise. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post before midnight on Wednesday 19th September, and I will draw a name out of a hat. Good luck!
