Let's ditch that last idea, shall we?

That last idea for my 2005 quilt show quilt was just too grand, and just too large.

Meet the REAL 2005 exhibition entry.

It's a Block of the Month called "Pleasures of the Garden". Until last Monday, I had all the blocks embroidered except the large centre one. I finished off the embroidery, cut out the sashing, sewed together, added my own (bigger) border, and voila! We have a quilt!

I was going to hand quilt it ... but alas my neck has been giving me grief, so I shall machine quilt it in a couple of weeks time.

  1. Michelle I LOVE your quilt. How many hours of embroidery? Whatever....it was certainly worth it. I always think that colour affects my 'connection' wih a quilt too, and these colours are just gorgeous.
    Well done. I just wish I could get right up close and have a real look
    Jenni in Adelaide who should be sewing instead of being on the computer. It's perfect sewing weather....all grey and wet and cold ...like winter should be.
