At long last I have finished Amy's quilt. It was started a few years ago at a workshop taken at Quorn Country Crafts.
The pattern is called Around the World, Amy went to the shop a few days before the workshop and chose the fabrics, however when I came to start the main fabric that she had chosen wouldn't work in the quilt as the pattern would have been lost when cut into small rectangles. I therefore used this for the binding and to make a large cushion cover to go with the quilt.
The quilt top when finished went into my UFO box for quite a while and it was only when she knew she'd been accepted in to University last August that she said "Mum do you think I could have my quilt for Uni"
Feeling guilty as you do I found it out the box and set to with the quilting, wanting to do something other than straight lines I drew around a dinner plate starting in the centre and working out and got 49 circles over the whole quilt and I have hand quilted them all.
Binding on I finished sewing it at my quilting group last Thursday and must say I'm rather pleased.
