Almost The End Of My First Quilt Swap.

Well It's been an exciting yet infuriating, relaxing but stressful, most enjoyable though sometimes really hard work taking part in my first quilt swap ever. I know that I haven't blogged about my progress for a while but between dealing with personal stuff and trying to control the sewing machine without my beloved walking foot I've had quite a lot of unpicking and re-sewing to do. Surprisingly enough though I found the pebbling to be the easiest part of quilting which probably lured me into a false sense of security and this is why I think it all went wrong and caused me four days worth of unpicking to do.
It was, however, a steep learning curve and I'm glad to say that the sense of achievement I now feel was well worth all the ups and downs. I must admit though there have been far more ups than downs.
I will be spending the next couple of days adding the binding to my Freedom Experiment Quilt then I shall be adding the label. Which is minus the name of the person it's intended for. It is a secret after all and if you are my partner I hope you like it because I really worked hard on it and tried my best to make you a beautiful quilt.
I would just like to thank everyone for all your really supportive comments throughout this quilt swap and especially the girls who have made my sides sore with laughter throughout this swap with the comments and conversations that have declined hilariously into chaos on flickr.
Anyway enough brown nosing and back to my binding.


  1. The quilting looks fabulous and this quilt is entirely unique and wonderful. Can't wait to see how the quilting finishes it off.

  2. This is fantastic! Love the name, and your quilting is great! You have a lucky partner!

  3. Thank you for your kind comments. I just hope my partner likes it as much as you both seem to.

  4. Wow! This is amazing .... I don't know how I missed it on flickr ... I'm going right on over to have a closer look ... wonderful ... well done ... i'm in awe ...

  5. I've already told you on flickr, but I'm telling you again, your quilt is beautiful. Your partner is going to love it! Well done!
