WiP Wednesday - 09-05-2007

A finish at long last! This is Rachel's quilt and has well and truly wrapped the world, with blocks from America, Australia, Canada, Finland, Germany, Italy, Japan, Turkey, and the UK. I busted the batting stash on this one. I used up the bits from the really thick stuff that I used on Alex's 9 patch so it is thick and heavy and tied really well. Never, ever again will I fuse bits together. Aunt's quilt is not going too well (sniff). Got a bit of a problem on the quilting front. I think I am going to have to be naughty and machine quilt the letters in the ditch.

As for "being naughty" -- umm, I won't tell if you don't.

Great quilt, I love the "stuffed" look with the heavy batting and the ties. And I'm sure it will be apreciated!

Very nice Clare. Are you planning to make any more quilts? Do you need more blocks or fabric?
