My Quilt Top Transformed

I just have to share this with you.

I am so happy about the way this quilt top has been transformed that I am grinning from ear to ear.

I made this quilt quite a long time ago, it has fabrics in there from clothes my girls wore, dresses I made them and myself, bits of Christmas fabric, all sorts of bits and pieces.  I remember the appliqued border took me forever, all needle turned bit by tiny bit.  Then it true style, once the top was complete I lost interest in it and put it away,even though I was very pleased with the way it looked I never got around the making it into a quilt. Every now and then I looked at it, but there was always something more important to start/finish.

Then I showed it too Sandra and she urged me to get it finished, I knew I wouldn't do it after all this time and I am very lucky that Jo from Lou Lou Rioux offered to do it for me and this afternoon she brought it too the shop all beautifully quilted.

I amazed by the way it's been transformed, I cannot tell you how happy I am to see it finished. I WILL make the binding and I WILL finish it properly, it is my job for Monday where I will sit in my bay window with the radio, looking out over the fields and hand stitch all away around until its finished.

Apologies for the shadows from the trees on the photograph

So thank you Sandra for the push and to Jo at Lou Lou Rioux for the beautiful transformation. Ann x
