Ostensibly this is quite a plain quilt however the detail is really in the embroidery and the back. The emblems - unicorn, lion, eagle and thistle are our national symbols. The centre block is The Declaration of Arbroath one of the most

I learned not to expect any comments on my hobbies such as knitting or sewing/quilting even if I point it out.
Society today is so gossip

I have found that I like to use what I would call a pillow runner instead of making shams or making the quilt big enough to cover the pillows. Similar to a bed runner that you see in the end hotels only smaller. For a queen size bed I make it about 24 x 66. Using this is much easier when making the bed too.
I'm new at blogging. Just wanted to share what I found to help me figure out yardage for my current quilt that will actually be a quilted duvet cover. I needed help as it has been a while since I did a quilt. This web site has a cool calculator if you have the other information it will help speed things for you. My past experience was just guest a mate yardage. I always bought more than I needed to cover base. Now retired and trying to keep a handle on money. Ha

I took it to a local sewing shop and rented a long arm machine to baste it together. I hand quilted around each of the flowers and the individual centers. I appliqued the edges to a plain border. I echo quilted 5 rows around the outer flowers for the border.

The quilting on this is beyond spectacular!
