Look what's finished (well almost!!) - Photo overload

CIMG5224

Sue's Japanese quilt is now fully bound! I'm so happy that the end is near, but I'm even more happy with how it's turned out.

So happy that (whisper) "I wanna keep it!"...

No, I love giving things I've made away to ther people, expecially when I see their reaction, and I K-N-O-W what kind of reaction I'll get with this one!

It's taken a long time in the making (Sue asked me to make a quilt for her in August last year - I blogged about it here).

So I present to you the *almost* finished quilt - I've yet to finish hand-stitching around the red and black Japanese blocks - but the rest is done.

Here it is spread out on my queen size bed - it covers it edge to edge perfectly. It was designed to cover a queen (as it does - to the edges) but it's primary use as a throw rug for the lounge.CIMG5219
