It’s so lovely to finally be able to share with you The Secret Quilt, although it’s not such a secret anymore. It reached it’s new owner on Tuesday (2 days late…whoops!) so I can finally show the finished product.
This quilt is a gift for my youngest sister, Lydia, who turned 18 on Sunday. The rest of us sibs pooled our money together so I could buy some seriously delicious fabrics to make a twin sized quilt that she can take to uni with her.
It truly was such a joy to work on such a special gift. I enjoyed every part of the part of the process. Quilting something this size is always a bit of a challenge for me on my machine but I don’t think it looks too bad considering the various clickedy clackedy noises the machine was making throughout!
Photographing this beast was also quite challenging. Clearing a space big enough for there not to be anything else in the shot is difficult for sure. I’m a little annoyed that I didn’t take a photo of what was going on in the other direction when these photos were taken. Just imagine the littles watching endless episodes of Postman Pat perched on tables and craning to see around chairs and all sorts!
Regardless of all that, I managed it. So here it is; The Secret Quilt.
Weirdly, yes, this is definitely weird, my very favourite part of the entire quilt making process from beginning to end, is rolling it into a sausage and seeing all of the fabrics squished together. I have no idea why I love it so much, but seriously, it makes my heart sing!
So, happy 18th Lyd! And a HUGE well done and congratulations to my parents for getting 6 kids successfully to 18. Cor, blimey, if that isn’t an achievement I don’t know what is!
