People often ask how long it takes to make a quilt, and recently I've been able to answer that (in my own case). Last year, I made 24 quilts - of various sizes - so, it must have taken me a fortnight! This year, however, I've not finished very many at all (8, actually) which means it's taking me about a month for each! Still, I've now finished my last bodice, the summer holidays are looming, and here's my Mile A Minute for J all done!
I bound it with various pieces of dark grey fabric from my stash. The quilting posed a problem. I couldn't decide whether to do meander, a design with stars, hearts, leaves or what, so I did them all! I started with meander with leaves,
then moved to meander with stars, (this one's a bit wonky, but so what!)
then with hearts.
I added a bit of writing just for fun (this is the 'Boys' from 'The Jersey Boys' which is the West End show he's currently working on),
and finished with double loops.
The label's on, and it's ready for his birthday next month. Hooray! Now for the next one.....
