Louise’s Cherry chocolate quilt top – done!
I know it’s a shamefully long time ago, but I thought those of you who made and sent me cherry-chocolate framed pinwheels when I won the lotto in August 2008 might like to see what has become of your handiwork.
Apologies for the dodgy picture – the quilt is currently laid out on the floor in our spare room, half-way through being basted before quilting. I tried rotating the picture, but it just looked weird…
It’s destined for my daughter – she helped design it, and chose the Amy Butler Imperial Fans fabric that forms the extra borders down the long sides. On its own it ended up slightly bigger than a UK single, but not big enough to pass as a double, so we extended the width slightly.
It’s backed with another piece of the Amy Butler fabric and more of the cream background. I’m really pleased with how it has turned out, and am looked forward to hand-quilting it. Maybe it’ll even be ready for the winter… 🙂
