Brown Quilt Top.

Hello,

Well my stitchery is now a quilt top. I worked on it on Thursday then completed the borders on Friday at Sewing. I had enough of the brown ric-rac to add to the outside border as well. On Saturday I got some calico for the backing and hope to start the quilting next week. I think I will hand quilt this one.
This quilt will be used in the spare room and of course it will come out when footy season starts again. There is nothing like cuddling up to a quilt in wintertime. It is a long weekend here so a bit of work is being done in the garden. The gutters have been cleaned and trees that are close to the house have been cut back. There is nothing like a man with a chainsaw!! Nothing is safe.
Happy days.
Bev C
