A finally its finished!

Thank goodness my quilt with its new name of Roses around the log cabin is finished.
I can't tell how pleased I am to move on to some new projects, even thou it was a pleasure to make, the length of time it took really got on my wick!!

Some Quilty Pictures







Some Quilty facts

Its made up of 16 log cabin blocks
I used fat quarters of eight different tones four of pinks/red and four of greens. Plus an extra metre of the red
It has both hand applique and blanket stitch
The quilting is free motion feathers and invisible thread around the applique
It was spray basted (My first time spray basting)
The pattern is not my own but one adapted from a book by Keiko Miyauchi called Applique Flowers
It took months to complete January-to last Monday
It will be hung above my sewing machine
It is 48 inches square

I promise not to blog about it ever again!! Lol
Happy quilting

This is stunningly beautiful and makes me want to make one if I wasn't already swamped with so many UFOs. :D Well done, indeed! It is definitely worth the time you spent on it.

Your quilts are beautiful with the latest pink flowers so exquisite. The quilting is great for the pattern. Congratulations on finishing it--and you have a place to hang it already.
