soft colours quilt finished

I am so stiff from my Pilates class, it doesn't seem to get any easier, but surely it must be doing me some good! Natural bendiness is not one of my gifts, but I keep on in the hope that one day I will wake up with a super trim waist and smooth, slim legs, an inch or two longer would be good too..... well a girl can dream!

But I have also finished the soft colours quilt and taken lots of photos before it is posted off to Wales where a little girl will open the parcel on Christmas morning. So here it is and I am really pleased with it:

The quilt measures 46 x 60 inches and has 100% cotton wadding which gives a lovely soft drape.

The quilting is straight line grid 1/4 inch from the ditch of each square and row. I quilted some swirls and tiny hearts and stars in some of the squares to give a random effect....

More lovely photos, I do so enjoy taking these....

I really enjoy adding the tiny random quilting designs, making the squares like mini quilts all by themselves....

 Thank you all of you who left a comment last week. Lots of you like the bigger format pictures and I do too, so I will carry on using them. What I love about quilting blogs is that all the comments I read are so positive and friendly. The thought that we reach across the world to leave a kind comment, a sort of virtual postcard, for someone we have never actually met cheers me everyday. The world needs so much more kindness at the moment don't you think?


Anyway, I am getting through my Christmas orders, amazingly I am in line with my calendar, one more quilt and a cushion to go, then lots of tidying and a big attack on scraps and oddments of leftover fabrics. I hope you all have a productive quilting week too,
Kind regards,
Sue
