Look at it now!! (Looking at the photo I'm not sure I manipulated the cut blocks quite right but in the flesh it looks OK)
Another top!! but sandwiched and ready to quilt. I tried machine quilting it (using a walking foot) but the backing was quite rucked up (I was obviously doing something wrong but I don't know what at present) and I wasn't satisfied with it. I am now hand quilting it.
As you are aware I posted about a quilt top on 16th May that I was making for a work colleague and I am running a little competition to name it. Today I showed photos of it and the one above at work and the consensus was that our colleague would prefer the one above (which is handy as I've started quilting it).
I am still running the naming competition for the other one but I going to close the competition on Wednesday so that my God-Daughter (who comes to stay on Wednesday for 3 days) can draw the winning name. I am sure that I will give this quilt as a comfort quilt to someone else, meanwhile I'll carry on hand quilting the one above!
As our Nursing Home is named after a tree and this quilt is green I am going to name it 'The ******* Hug'
