The wonky quilt is finished!! I spent last weekend binding it and washed it. Then I realised that I didn't know how to hang it on the wall!! So I messaged Leah day on Facebook and as always she has the know how!! I sewed a hanging sleeve on the back and bought a dowel and voila!
I'm really happy with it and think it looks good on my bedroom wall. I think the only thing I may have done differently would be to use a darker thread for the fmq as I don't think it shows up as good as it could have done but I only had white. Never mind though I'm still happy with it.
I've not done the name tag on this weeks project simply because I'll never show a quilt so as I've had a pretty stressful couple weeks at work I've taken it easy! Am planning to do the bare branches though coz I've never tried travel stitching so I'll link that up next week!
Am planning to spend a bit of time in the garden this weekend coz we are in for some sun hopefully and as I live in one of the rainiest places in the uk I've got to 'make hay while the sun shines' :)
Here's a few pics of the finished quilt hope you like it !!
