This is a secret project I have been working on over the last couple of months for my sister Jane (nothing happens quickly round here) for a significant birthday.
It is made from old embroidered pieces, a vintage irish linen sheet and tablecloths. I also added a little of the light blue essex linen and a pink shot cotton I had in my stash.
It is quite big 180 cms by 180 cms.
The quilting was done by Sue Burnett on her long arm quilting machine and the binding is a Liberty tana lawn.
Some pieces were family pieces and others have been collected over the years at op shops. This cat is one of my favourites.
The back also involved some piecing.
Jane now has her quilt and we are enjoying a lovely extended girls' weekend on the Sunshine Coast. Bliss!
