As a lot of you already know Mum comes over every Tuesday and we wisely spend the day sewing and quilting!
In June she started her most formidable project to date to produce an early wedding anniversary surprise for a lovely lady at dad’s work.
After finding out her favourite colour was purple, Mum and I spent a lot of time selecting the right fabrics. It was such hard work checking out every quilt store we came across in the search for purples! : )
Then work began in earnest every week and slowly it began to evolve over time into a king size quilt that has exceeded our expectations. It’s a monster!!!
We finally finished the last stitch on Saturday.
She has done such an amazing job! I only helped with the cutting she did everything else on her own! What a champ!
Sorry for the blurry photo.
