The finished Quilt!

Ta dah!!! All done! This is the jelly roll quilt all finished, quilted and bound. Looks ok from the distance for a first attempt, just don't look too closely! This is the reverse, a magenta batik. There are a few things I need to learn how to do better; how to keep in the ditch for one, how to tie off my ends properly and how to get absolutely NO wrinkles in it as I stitch.


Still it has been a learning experience, and I am still encouraged to make one for my bed. Maybe I better see what my quilting frinds think of it when they see it IRL before I get too excited!


This is the binding. I think this bit went ok but I am not sure I have done the corners quite right! Never mind, 'tis done and Katy loves it. Just got to do a label for it now before Burn shoots me....

Beautiful. Even if there are mistakes here and there at least it proves you made it - not that I can see any!
