At Last..

At last I have finished my bed quilt.
You would not believe how I have procrastinated over the making of this quilt.
All because of my new sewing machine.
I have mastered the sewing machine!!
Would you believe I was being too cautious, using a slow speed.
I guess I was cautious because the new computerised machine scared me.

Now I have the machine going full speed..
and not one broken needle.
The machine and I are friends at last.

I wanted the quilt to be soft colours to go with my light room.
I am so happy. I can now get on with other projects I have planned.

Spring is here and it is a very good time to be starting afresh.

  1. Thanks Catherine. You have inspired me to learn hand quilting. I have a lot of UFO's on hand though. In fact I have plenty to last well into my retirement I think.

  2. Your quilt is so beautiful J, a real work of art.

  3. Such a beautiful quilt and peaceful spot to rest your head. Congratulations on your finished project, a job well done, AND a new friend - your sewing machine. I admire those of you who quilt and sew as sewing is not my best talent. Lovely, Joan.

  4. There's nothing like the feeling of satisfaction when you finish a big project. There's all this freedom and wonder waiting for you! What a beautiful quilt.

  5. Thank you everyone for encouraging comments.
