porthole quilt finished, hurrah!


twig quilt finished, originally uploaded by lusummers.

so, it's done. it needs a sleeve on it, but it's done. i spent the afternoon stitching down the pokey outy round borders (there were 16 of them, it took a while) and as the top layer is canvas, it was pretty hard going. my previously poorly stitching finger is seriously perforated now. but luckily i didn't bleed on it. but it's all worth it! next stop, birmingham nec. do let me know if you happen to be going - i'd love to know what you think of it 'in the flesh'!

(and please excuse the fact the photo title is twig, i was over-excited when i wrote my post. it's of course called portholes. how could i possibly have forgotten the whole gloryhole/porthole debacle?!)

Holy shizzle...that is mindblowingly mindblowing. Shame we're not going anywhere near NEC, i'd love to see it in the flesh.

Now go and rest that poor finger...

This is incredible.

Seriously amazing, and I love it, I love the white/cream with the quilted stitch and the bursts of colour.

Is this at the quilt festival thing? I think I am going so look forward it!

Good grief woman. It's a stunner, truly. Why 'twig' though?

lu summers said...
