That is beautiful....I love it. You did a good job on finding just the right fabrics and arranging them. Hand quilting is beautiful too. If it needs a new home, I'll send my addy.

My favorite kind of quilt. Really nice job - and hand quilting - what an accomplishment.

Fugal & recycling...boy can I relate. I have purchased garments at garage sales & thrift stores simply for the fabric or the buttons. Both are quite expensive & as long is there is life left it's worth repurposing. You're a girl with vision & I love the quilt. Quiet an accomplishment for a first quilt I would say.

I love it! Can I ask if you had a design in mind and then went to the op shops looks for the fabrics you needed, or did you buy what you liked and put the design together afterwards?

I love the way it draws the eye around in a very harmonious way, and it looks sooooooo sooooooooffffft!

Well done. Sorry to hear about your DHs old clock. So sad to see all the buildings that will have to be demolished in ChCh- it really is incredible that no one lost their life.
