I have finally started to quilt my "Seasons of the Heart" quilt. So far everything is sailing along smoothly. I have quilted almost half of the quilt over the past few days. These is so much embroidery deciding where to quilt can be a problem at times but I am pleased with it so far. A bit of a diversion from quilting. I joined up to do this free online workshop on
Sew Mama Sew's blog every Wednesday (Thursday here) for 4 weeks. I have been following along and today the second lesson we had to fuse all the pieces to the background and stitch them in place.

I am quite happy with how it looks and can't wait until next week. The wall hanging is called "A Partridge in a Pear Tree" and is an Advent Calendar.

Is finally finished. I have been working on this quilt top almost non stop to get it ready for Lou before her return from England. Although a simple quilt it was still time consuming and like most things we make seemed to take forever. I am very happy with the results. Trying not to put fabrics together was the biggest problem and I am sure when it is all quilted and bound we are sure to see those 2 fabrics together it is inevitable and seems to always happen. Thought I would share these few photos.
