A lovely BIG quilt to get my teeth into. Marian asked if I could do some ‘fevvers’ on this one,  woo-hoo, you betcha. [She also asked me not to trim the edges as she is going to bring the back to the front as the binding – great idea it will be perfect.]

M doesn’t really like the feathers only Vermicelli [yuk yuk yuk] BUT as this was for her Brother –  to replace the one he has worn out completely –  she gave me permission to do some and anything I thought appropriate for him – he is a bit of a writer so………. I had some fun with the quilting, see what you think. M has received it this morning and likes it so that is good news.

Hmm what do you say about yourself? I am a Quilter. I just love to Quilt for myself and others. I love fabrics and threads, simple things, but they make me very happy.

    To Jan, the ‘Quilt Whisperer’…..
    It’s absolutely beautiful Jan. I love it so much I’m going to have to be brave and pass it on to the owner. Well, it did look great on my bed hahaha…. another quilt will be on the way asap – will probably have to post Monday as waiting in for parcels and 2 very important phone calls at the moment…..
    Thanks again Jan…
