    Muv ... What a perfect backing fabric. It's like an English Country Garden!

    Will we get to see your quilt as a Christmas present? Hope so!
    And then next up, you'll have to make an official Royal Baby Quilt as a companion to this one.

    I just finished the top to a quilt that is a tribute to Africa. Since I'm not from there, I don't think it counts as patriotic, but I posted it in the photos section if you guys want to see it.

    Wildyard - it's lovely, all those vibrant colours!

    Hello QuiltE - not there yet, but still steaming ahead!
    It will take a Coronation or another Jubilee to get me to make another quilt with this amount of work to it. You never know, if the Queen lasts as long as the Queen Mother did we could have a 75th anniversary to celebrate.

    Muv .... ha! but but but .... a baby quilt would be MUCH smaller! Just think how much fun it'd be to do!!!
    And indeed there could be a 75th the way she is going. Poor Prince Charles, he could be the King that'll never get to be, too.


    Wildyard... I followed your other threads on this quilt and posted to the finale! It's an interesting technique and kind of like an adult I Spy. I hope the recipient is pleased!

    It's looking so beautiful, Muv ... and thanks so much for the preview!
    The backing is ever-so perfect for it too.

    What a perfect project to end the year with. CONGRATULATIONS!!!

    Thanks for keeping me going, Ladies!

    Another preview... a picture I took earlier today. I might need a few days' breather before putting the binding on.

    Thank you QuiltE!

    Burning the midnight oil... one more line of machine stitching to do, then it is all assembled. I need to put it away for a few days so we can have the dining room table back and I can have a rest and do all the Christmassy things I haven't even thought of yet.

    The more I see that backing material Muv, the more I'm falling in love with it. It is gorgeous!!! Sigh!!!!!

    Jeanie - Same here! Just as well really. I've been seeing an awful lot of it over the past couple of weeks. It is such a lovely texture too, very pleasant to work with, and no nasty fraying.

    Count me in on loving your quilt Muv, and being anxious to see the whole thing. I just finished a placemat gift of a HippoQueen in grays and pinks. Wouldn't some scraps of your backing have been perfect for her!!!

    Hi ladies - just been reading this thread: I have enjoyed seeing the little glimpses of quilting from Muv, and the discussion of what you have been doing all year. I must have missed this challenge, as I was busy moving house, etc, etc, at the beginning of the year. However, I thought I would share my "patriotic endeavours" with you, and hope you will be encouraging! I made these for Christmas presents, but got a bit carried away and made more of them than I needed!

    Please accept my apologies for the poor quality of the photo - iPads are not designed to take quality pictures!

    Looking forward to the Patriotic Challenge "reveal"! Here in the North East it is wet, windy and pretty miserable. However, we are toasty warm inside! Seasons greetings to you all!

    Hello Brown Owl!!

    Hooray hooray somebody has popped up from England! The weather is total rubbish in the South West too.

    I love your Union Jack cushions, they're an absolute hoot.

    Just burning the midnight oil here and in another ten minutes or so IT WILL ALL BE OVER!!!!!

    No, not the end of the world. What a load of rot all that was.

    Dublb and Muv! Thank you for your kind words about my cushions. I kind of got carried away with them and made loads! Guess what everyone is getting for Christmas!

    Muv - how is the flooding around where you are? South Wales, Devon and Cornwall seem to be bad, and my family in Weston super Mare are coping but watching the water levels rise.

    I have just signed up for the mugrug challenge in Jan/Feb. This will be the first challenge I have done, ever. I am looking forward to having more personal contact with people on the board, so it should be fun!

    If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Then quit. There's no point in being a damn fool about it.

    I looked up the company that makes the fabric Murv is using for backing and it is sold in the US for those that fell in love with it. That was right after she showed it to us so I don't remember the distributor since I've slept a few nights since then but any of you should be able to find it. Price was comparable to good fabric at a LQS.
