I love this quilt............ (finish #14)

April 2010 I started with this ..............
I had done quite a bit of it but have been stalling with the quilting and binding


thanks to the prompting of Sew It's Finished
I now have this...........


Lots of applique in the centre and the outside border
34 roses and lots of leaves


hand stitching of leaves and vines


pretty backing


difficult to show the quilting
~ in the ditch around the roses ~
~ a vine of leaves round the larger blue border ~
~ large roses quilted over the squares ~


size to top a double bed


I love it
It's going to my eldest daughter
her first quilt
from her mum


It's a surprise for her so I can't show it on my blog
Lucky I can show it here
