It is what it was....

...a product of the Christmas rush. No real time to hide away upstairs in my sewing room but time enough to spend each evening being sociable downstairs.


In construction terms that meant a snatched half hour upstairs to piece some strips together sans ruler, making sure to include both pick and blue so all bases are covered.

And then time in the evenings to just randomly hand-quilt it however I wanted without much thought.


Nothing pre-planned. Just mindlessly relaxing hand-quilting.


And the back.


Now to wait for the recipient's arrival.

  12. Looks very modern. I like it. I don't hand quilt (the thought sends chills down my spine) but I do like what you have done. It gives it so much interest that it isn't "planned"!
