It's Finished

Last week I put the last stitch into my very beautiful "Under the Australian Sun" Quilt.  It was certainly the most binding I have ever sewn and it took me 4 nights to hand stitch it.

Designed by Leesa Chandler to showcase her range of Australian Wild flower prints, featuring the spectacular Waratah, Kangaroo Paw and Flannel Flowers.  I chose the Brown/Orange colour-way rather than the Black and Red to compliment my furniture.






At 93" x 88" I decided to entrust it to Desley from Addicted to Quilts in Melbourne who beautifully quilted it in an all over windblown leaves pattern.  I think it compliments the backing fabric perfectly.





I tweaked the design of the quilts block and pieced the backing giving an added bonus, the quilt is also reversible!



OK.... I am really pleased with the result so here is another photo.....   ;-D



And I would like to thank Desley for turning my Quilt Top in to a beautiful Quilt.
