.Finished Quilt.

Remember my latest loungeroom cushions?  I finished my matchy-matchy quilt over the weekend.
After the cutting and piecing was done, I hand-quilted the entire thing.  Long and slow.  Just the way I like it, something "busy" to do when I want to watch a bit of TV!
Mum helped me come up with a design for quilting, I divided the quilt into quarters then quilted big rectangles within rectangles in each of the quarters.  I used white perle 8 thread and love the chunky stitched look.
I couldn't picture anything other than plain white for the binding and am really happy with the sharp frame that it gives.
The quilt is a great size, measures 76" x 64"...not too big or too small, ready to keep us snuggly in Winter and good enough to use in cubby house building!  What more could we ask for?!
