Gift delivered

   
A quick shot of the back of a small quilt I made for a dear old friend. ... before ironing .... very blurred, I pushed the button just as the seven year old holding it up decided she was tired of being of help;)
 ... and after ironing.
If I had had the time for more quilting, I might have kept the white border. These borders are there to ease quilting in a frame. But alas, there was no time - the gift had to be finished before a sewing appointment.
 Some favorite fabrics and colors in there...

 Almost done - there remained frenzied last minute sewing down of the single binding. There was no time for last show off pic;)


Folded for gifting - it was very well received, and I'm very glad:)
All hand sewn - including binding
All cotton - except for wool batting
Have a beautiful week end

I love your colors in this quilt. They are so soft. Combined with the hand quilting the project is such a treasure. What a wonderful gift for your friend. You've got me looking at my stash with a new eye. I would love to recreate a quilt of my own with similar colors. I also agree with Jan, your photos are beautiful.

Hello,
I keep comming back to look at your quilt since I saw it the first time on Repro Quilt Lover.
I went thought your blog but I didn't find any references to a pattern or a seize.
Could you please help me with that because I really would love to do something similar.
Thank you
