It has taken a while but I have finally finished my Valentine Quilt which is a design from a this book by Elizabeth Hartman. I really like the book - I must go back and visit its patterns and ideas again.
I'm very pleased with the quilt. The top of the quilt has been sewn together for quite sometime (pre bunny #3) but I just hadn't got around to putting all the layers together and quilting the beast.
This quilt it pretty much all made up by fabric scraps from my scrap bin - which is now mysteriously full again - how does that happen?
I used a swirly whirly pattern during the free motion quilting. The same sort of pattern I used on the Mother's Day Cushions.
I even used up the last few strips of scrap fabric left over on the back of the quilt.
You also might remember I used some of the same left over scraps to make this quilt for baby Flora.
Getting projects finished feels good - with the three little ones constantly underfoot and demanding my attention - finishing these kind of projects feels like a monumental achievement!
