I have recently recieved my quilt back from being quilted on a long arm quilting machine by Rosemary from Frome Valley Quilting. The quilt is for my superking bed so it measure ove 90" square, which is a lot of quilt to put thro my little sewing machine hence why I sent it away to be quilted!

It was difficult to photograph for sewing machine is under there, some where! I love the design Rosemary chose for my Amy Butler fabric. The fabric is very bold and busy so Rosemary has chosen a great design to complement it.

To finish the quilt I have decided to bind it in a lovely lime green to match the outer triangles. It is a mamoth job due to the weight of the quilt but it will be worth it in the coming winter months when it's on my bed!
See, I told you my sewing machine was under there......
I sew my quilt bindings on both front and back by machine, I use a folded method which gives nice sharp corners too!

I hope you have enjoyed seeing what's on my workdesk. Please share yours on

Oh my, that quilt is G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S!! I love the fabrics you've used - you must be so patient to take on a project like that. I wouldn't know where to start. I didn't even know there were people who would do the quilting for you!! She's done a great job.
Hugs, LLJ xx
