Let Me Be

In February 2009 I started making "Let Me Be" designed by Quilt Soup.


The quilt top was sewn together in March 2009 and sat in the sewing room till November last year when it was basted ready for quilting.  Quilting didn't start until last Saturday afternoon.

Quilting was finished Sunday evening.  The binding is ready to be sewn on but it was too hot last night.  This quilt is a departure for me from colours I usually choose - there's a lot of mauve.

We have had a couple of changes at home and some furniture has been moved from one room to another.  A desk became free, so it's been re-painted and is in the sewing room to hold the embroidery machine.


Summer has arrived in Australia with a vengeance - so hot in many areas and cyclones are causing more devastation in Queensland.

Your quilt turned out beautifully! All that angst about the lost binding - for nothing! It's just lovely.

What a beautiful quilt you are working on. I look forward to seeing it all bound.

I think it is so funny how we have opposite weather. Stay cool!

Such a pretty quilt Lynda. Yes it is a bit hot for bindings at the moment. I am quilting a few quilts and am finding it a bit hot for that - no a/c or fan near the sewing machine at present....
Terrible news about the cyclone that is coming. I have good friends in Mossman who aren't evacuating....rather worried about them.

Hello Lynda, I love your quilt that has been holidaying in your cupboard. Good luck with the binding. Isn't it great when you have furniture you can re-use.
Happy sewing.
