just the binding to do






I love this quilt, a friend and I both decided that we wanted time for us to sew as opposed to sewing for class teaching. We get together every Wednesday evening at my house and we sew to our hearts content.


We find a pattern and look at each other and say shall we and invariably we do, this is one of these quilts it came I believe from a Fons and Porter magazine probably well over a year ago. I was goingt o hand quilt it but is way to big to handle and I really wanted it finished to take with me at our Quilters Guild of Ireland conference/retreat in March.
I left it with Yvonne McKee in Quilters Quest in Belfast, with the only instruction that I didn't want flowers. I am delighted and over the moon. just the binding to do.
I think Poppy is looking for any mistakes!

My word - it is stunning! I must have missed it in the magazine, or you have definitely made it better than was issued. Absolutely wonderful!
