At last, a finished quilt!
This is my latest effort so as you can see, I do sometimes finish a quilt! This has been largely made amidst great preparations for overseas visitors and a holiday but it is finished, right down to the label. This quilt is not for me or anyone I know: it is a charity quilt for a women's refuge. A group I belong to makes quilts for the children of women who must take refuge somewhere safe.
Again it is the Continuous Stairs design but how different it is with a complete change of colour and colour layout! It is very bright as I wouldn't ordinarily use so much yellow but I am sure some child will like it. Quilting has been very basic (in-the-ditch) just with stitching down the 'stairs'.
NB. The baby quilt with the chenille as in the previous post has come a bit further and is now a top and I'm rather pleased with it but I don't think I will be sewing chenille again in a hurry! My sewing room looked like snow had hit it for a while!
