It has just got cold enough to add the extra layer to the bedding, so we now have this quilt on the bed. I made it about four and a half years ago, doing all the piecing on the machine I inherited from my mum, an 1897 Singer 28K, the star of the first two Youtube videos my husband I made.
This quilt was the first one I had made for years, and I had not yet worked on quilting at home - lack of time and space had a lot to do with it. I had the long arm quilting and binding done by Midsomer Quilting. They did a fabulous job. It's not such a brilliant idea to have the quilting cutting through the appliqué design, but I wanted the quilt finished, so I didn't care.
