Another Finish

After about 3 years of on and off hand quilting, I have finished this lovely little cot quilt.  There was never a destination or deadline, it was just a hand sewing project that I would take with me to any exhibition or event where there was an opportunity to sit and stitch quietly.  The front and back fabrics are commercial batiks and the wadding is Quilters Dream Wool.  It's quilted with a King Tut thread, they're as good for hand quilting as machine. The pattern is a Sandie Lush one, I can't remember the name. I'm very pleased with how it's turned out, so much so that I'm busy marking up the next one - Fleur by Sandie Lush.  Much as I love the pattern I've done, there were a lot of short lines and much turning of the quilt while working on it, so the new pattern has a lot more flowing lines.  Only one disappointment with the finished quilt, I seem to have spilt some tea on it at some point, I don't remember doing this, but I'm going to have to try to get it out.  How frustrating! 


  1. That is beautiful. I've never tried hand quilting batiks but I've often wondered if the fabric would be too closely woven to handle easily?

  2. Wow, you have been busy. So sorry you've spilt something on it - doesn't show in these pics :}
