I gave the Heartfelt quilt to my colleague Tony yesterday afternoon. My friend Jane was with me for support and took the photo. He was very touched by it all. The quilt stirred a bit of commotion when I showed it off. Two colleagues are now wanting to make one as well.
The tragedy of Black Saturday touched everyone's heart. The loss of homes and lives was more than anybody could imagine. Again, being a quilter I set off to make a quilt. I wanted to do this by myself so that I feel I am contributing it directly to someone I know who lost his home.
I started this quilt on the evening of 9 Feb. and completed it last Sunday. I machine quilted it. The quilt is 62"x86" in size and it is nice and warm. I am so pleased at how it turned out. A real comfy quilt. I will give it away tomorrow.
Details of striplings on the border. I am very pleased of the quilting because I am a hand quilter and only had a couple of lessons on machine quilting, I feel very proud of my effort.
Quilting action on Sunday afternoon.
