A UFO Finish!

I finally finished the quilt for my friend Dianne :)  I am reasonably pleased with how it turned out - it has been so long since I quilted anything of any size on the Brother BM-2600 ..... I had forgotten just how small the throat is :(

Anyway, all done now - here are some pics of my Lifetime Quilt #13 - Rainbow Coin Stacks  :)

here is the shot I took in 2011 when I first finished the flimsy
Block Lotto Winnings

I shortened it, and added another white strip on each end, then sandwiched and quilted.  The backing is a red and white gingham type pattern, but is stronger than gingham - I think it is actually sheet material.

One of the benefits of the quilt is that Dianne's gorgeous grand-daughter will be able to play "I Spy" on this quilt.  Hopefully, Dianne will be able to use the cushion in the club rooms when she returns - the club rooms have plastic chairs and they get so cold in the winter :)


Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day - any day doing something you love makes it a good day ;-)

Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.
