Istanbul - Just a peek

My Istanbul Quilt is back from the wonderful Desley who once again has woven her magic and I am thrilled with the result.
As I have mentioned in previous posts - this is our Wedding gift to our DS#1 and DDIL, so I am not going to show it all off until it is bound!

BUT because I just had to share, here are just a few 'teasers' for those who have been following my progress .....

Outer border

(Here I have strayed from the original pattern in that my borders are not RED.)

The Center medallion

(You have all seen me working on the applique here, so I think it's OK to peek)

and it's outside edge...

(Lots of lovely feathers and pebbles).

I can't wait to show off the finished quilt - but I think there are a couple of people who need to see it first!


  1. Absulotly beautiful. My gosh Desley is an incrediable machine quilter. Her work complements your beautiful applique. Hugs Glenda

  2. Thanks for the sneaky peek! It looks amazing.
