My Brother quilted this for me.

Hello,

I hope you had a great day. We have had lots of rain today. If it is to wet to be outside its time to sew.
Over the last couple of days I have been working on my Ladybug Quilt.


I originally was only going to use it for a tablecloth and had planned to use some thin wadding inside it. I found a fairly big piece of 50% wool/50% cotton wadding. I just needed to add a strip to one side to make it big enough so now I can use it as a lap quilt if needed.


I embroidered a quilting pattern in the centre amongst the sunflowers.


Some baskets  in the corners and flowers along the borders. 

Now you may be wondering which one of my Brothers quilted this!!! I used a Brother Machine Embroidery Card Number 22. The final measurements for the quilt is 40 inches square. Another finish for the OPAM Challenge (One Project A Month)

Happy Days.
Bev C

It is so unusual to read that it is too wet to go outside. After such a long dry spell it's good to have that rain.
By the way, I do like the way your quilt has turned out. Lovely!
