    Hand quilted ? Whoa, it's very impressive! all those tiny squares and very nicely put together, love those colors too. Must have taken you awhile to hand quilt it.

    Thanks nwm, I can't recall how long it took to quilt, but only 2 or 3 months, that was all but I did work on it EVERY DAY even if just for a few minutes!

    Your quilt is beautiful and so is the hand quilting. It looks so cozy and I love the colors. You did a fantastic job.

    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.

    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.

    Thank you again everyone, NoveltyJunky no I did not have a pattern in mind, I chose it after I had collected the fabrics, I used that one because it was simple to follow. I was lucky enough to find the boarder fabric and the cream fabric to match at a garage sale, the pieces were all small off cuts or cut into strips, this largely dictated that I could only cut small pieces. The main fabric is poly cotton not really suitable for hand quilting and I had to put some joins in funny places as I could not match any of the pattern repeats etc. The lady who sold me the bag of offcuts had worked once in a place where they made Duvet covers and such, I do not think I shall ever get that lucky again! It was then just a matter of finding fabrics which toned in hence the shirts and skirt etc. I have started my next quilt in the same pattern but in much brighter fabrics, doing the same thing only my main fabric is an old sun dress which i can no longer fit into, it has a lot of black in it and i am having fun picking all the bright colours out and using them against the black.

    That is so pretty. I love the recycled part of it too. I love to reuse material for new things. I can't believe it's all hand quilted. You did a great job. Can't wait to see your next.
