Fast forward to this May this year, and the quilt and pieced AMH baking I had made, are still sitting, untouched, in my WIP pile (which I have to admit has been stressing me somewhat.). Normally I try to quilt all my quilts myself, whether basic straight lines on my machine or hand quilting, but with the lack of time I seem to have these days, I made the decision to send it to my friend Leeanne of Quiltmekiwi, for quilting.
Best decision ever. I asked for an allover design, but something that would still let the quilt be soft and drapeable. I asked Leeanne to provide the batting which is a wool/polyester blend and she quilted it with a lovely camellia design, which echos a lot of the lovely AMH florals. It has now arrived back home, and after a frenzied weekend of making and attaching the binding, which is Kona berry colourway, I now have a new quilt snuggle under on cool winter evenings with a book or hand sewing. This one is strictly mine, unless Meeka decides to join me.
**As yet, this quilt is still nameless - ideas are welcome**
