Spring in my step - The quilt

Having handed my mother’s birthday quilt over to her on Sunday, I can finally show pictures of the quilt and not only bits and pieces. Here it is.

My mother had wished for a quilt to hang over their bed, so it measures approx 70*150cm (28”*60”).

40 different fabrics – 30 solids and 10 patterned, and miles of variegated orange threads.

I was a really windy day, so I was running back and forth trying to secure all the corners to the fence and keeping the edges straight.

The quilt would only hang flat when the wind was pinning it against the fence, but it’s was quite cool watching it twist and turn.

Now the next question is if my parents will be happy with it, but if not, I won’t mind getting it back..
