Isn't this absolutely beautiful ? It is Lesley's finished Red Quilt [see this post for more details] It is now on her daughter Emily's bed, and E & L kindly said I could publish a photo on the blog.
This has really inspired me, so as I have been undergoing The Great Loft Sort this week, I have thrown all the bits of BLUE fabric into a separate bag. Not exactly sure when I shall get the quilt blocks pressed and cut and sorted and sewn - but hey-ho, well begun is half done and all that!
Here is a picture of MY bed yesterday evening...
I think I have adequate raw materials for this project anyway.
It was Lesley's Birthday yesterday - many happy returns, dear friend!
I should point out that L's quilt is HAND-SEWN - even more impressive! It has taken her a year to complete [during which time she has also produced angel costumes, teddy bears, a nativity set, cardigans and more] Mine is definitely going to be done with the assistance of a machine. Target completion date will be Valentine's Day 2010 [there, I have published a date, so I must get it done now]
