the wonderful quilt

i'm so getting there with this, & i LOVE it, 
nap time was good to me today, & i got the quilting finished too! (simple lines following the zig zags)
so with the binding made, it should get finished real soon, 
this was made using two moda charm packs from the wonderland fabric range by momo & some 'snow white' (i think) solid,  i had originally planned to make a half triangle pattern, kind of like this one, but as usual i changed my mind half way through the project & this is what i ended up with,  this quilt was very neglected for a long long time, but with the end in sight, i gain a (almost crazy) burst of energy to jump the final hurdle.

doing this quilt has made me realise how bad i am at quilting, i need way more practice, but i'm learning as i go, this was the first time i'd done a pieced back for a quilt, & i know it won't be the last, in fact i think my favourite little part of the quilt is on the back, 
i saved this little rabbit to put on the back, so he wouldn't get lost on the front, & squashed a little of the selvedge in there too for good measure, (cut from some of the wonderland yardage i used to make the back)

i'll be back next week, with some finished socks (i promise hunnie) & hopefully a little lace KAL update, however that project has been some what sabotaged by little O, seeing as she pulled the needle off the stitches!!!!!!!!, i did an immediate rescue mission, but haven't faced looking again, 'deep breath & count to 10'

  3. This is just lovely! I remember nap times fondly, although all of mine stopped having them by the time they were 18 months!xx

  4. Oh no! Don't you hate it when that happens. I once had a pair of socks that I discovered too late that I had messed up so badly that I needed to rip it out and do the whole thing all over again. A year later...
    Your quilt is beautiful! You are one talented lady!
