WARNING.....slight brag here.... but my quilt is finished!!!
Thanks must go to Janelle who not only helped me organise it....but also coached me through cyberspace......if I (who hasn't stitched a quilt before) can do it....anyone can!!!

Ive also got to thank Mum....I borrowed her machine (mine doesn't have the quilting attachments required) ....and who also helped me stitch (and if I'm honest...almost did all the ruffles for me) the pieces of the quilt top.

...did I tell you I LOVE it!!

    Janelle must be a fabulous teacher and you must be a wonderful student. This quilt looks stunning and so professionally made. Are you sure you have never done quilting before???? LOL:)

    I love it and am glad you do too after all your hard work. I am so proud of you:)

    I hope that nasty infection has gone away now and the medicines have worked. Have been thinking of you often even though I haven't popped into your blog to say hello for a while.

    Take care of yourself and have a great week. Lots of love from Susan (smiles1965) at Scrapboxx
