Gingham Girls - My Favourite Things

The stitcheries for this quilt were started around June 2011 and stitched intermittently over the next two and a bit years.

Machine quilting was completed in October 2013

then the quilt needed some hand-quilting

and it was bound in November 2013 before the hand-quilting was finished.

Some beads and buttons were also added.


And I have no idea when the quilt was actually finished - some time in 2014 - I didn't take a photo of the completed quilt until last night.

Went to the pictures during the week with Jenni and some friends to see "The Water Diviner" - loved it although I found some of the war scenes particularly difficult to watch (closed my eyes).  Going to see "Into the Woods" tomorrow night.

Hello Lynda,

What a stunning quilt, so much work involved with it. Love the hanger you have it on. A sign of a good movie is how you react to it!

Happy days.
