At Least it is Still in the Same Year

The first record I have of this quilt is in January 2012.

Flickr is great because it keeps a photo journal of what I have made and also tells me when I uploaded the photos.

It has taken me 10 months to get the border on. I just couldn't decide what would be the best fabric to use. Then I couldn't get any of the fabric in Melbourne so I had to order it from overseas. I am not totally thrilled with the way it looks but I am thrilled that I don't have to think about it any more. I think the border makes it look less happy and darkens the feel of it.

The black background fabric with the daisies has been chosen for the backing and it is ready to stretch.


  1. You do it again! Create a wonderful quilt! That border is awesome!

  2. If it doesn't make you happy then I think you should give it to me as I'd smile every time I saw it.
    No,'s gorgeous, you're just over thinking it. Once it's quilted you'll love it to bits.

  3. That's a pretty border! I love diamonds in the borders. You used those plaids so cleverly in there.
    I really like the grays in the previous post too. They are so calm and sophisticated.

  4. Wonderful! I think it looks very happy. Congratulations on getting it done.

  5. Looks great and it does not matter how long it takes, does it?

  6. Looks wonderful - happy for sure. The border is so special.
