My last ever post...

...about the Camelot quilt because it is done.

With the four extra blocks I added it's an ample single bed size

Entirely hand-pieced and hand quilted.

Still  a bit more outlining round the blocks to do.

As with previous hand-quilted quilts,  I didn't bother basting. Just laid all three layers on the ground, scooped it up and then positioned my quilt hoop in the middle of the quilt so it was taut and then quilted my way out from the centre to the edges.

If you want to see individual close-ups of each block, just type 'Camelot' in the search box to the right of this post

It was great fun to do but I have had my fill of fiddly and complicated and am leaning towards more simple at the moment.


Oh, and I realise I never said who would get the pattern.

It'll be on it's way, tea stains and all!

  9. It is fantastic! I've been looking forward to seeing it finished. I might try the no basting thing with a quilt top I've just finished and am planning to hand-quilt. I really don't enjoy basting

  13. This turned out stunning. I would have thought an entirely hand pieced and hand quilted quilt would have taken a lot longer, but you were quite speedy. Just beautiful!

  14. I love it! Amazing work! I didn't know that one could hand quilt w/out basting. I love all the different fabrics you used! I think I would have been too scared to mix them all together but they look great - I think I just need to loosen up a bit more with my fabric choices.
