Quilt 1 Finished

It is always a great feeling when you completely finish a project and the quilt I was making from the lessons I am doing on line with Phillipa Naylor is now complete.  I made this quilt with fabric I had in my stash but then I bought a few pieces at the sale in Toowoomba, they went in as well.

It actually looks better on the bed than on the wall.

And I am really pleased with the quilting. A circular pattern to balance all those points.

The other thing I am pleased about is the back.  The backing I put together makes this quilt reversible.

I'm not sure which cat I like the most.  Fat cat is I think my favourite.

But then the other two are pretty nice as well.

I have bound lots of quilts but I have to say that Phillipa's method gives the most professional result.  The mitred corners sat perfectly and you just couldn't see how the binding had been sewn on.  I have never achieved that level of finish before.  I have also made a bag to keep it in.

Now this quilt was to be a charity donation but I have one grand daughter who really wants it.

What to do?
