First of all, I must apologize for the quality of the pictures you are about to see. It's an absolutely miserable day here - raining and threatening to turn to the freezing sort. Good day to be inside with my sewing machine working on #1 of 'The Quilt-zzzzz'. I got the top pretty much done and only (!!) have to add a 7" plain border all around and then figure out how on earth I'm going to press it on my little weeny 'thing' that passes for an ironing board. Might go knocking on neighbours doors looking for the loan of a proper ironing board - I'm sure somebody will have one.
So, without further ado (and rotten pictures aside), here it is....
Our bed is a queen size, and this quilt is a king, so the 'fit' isn't right. Not only that, our bedroom is on the small size and unless I climb out the window (three story drop, plus afraid of heights = not gonna happen) I can't get far enough away to get a decent photo.
A closer view of the pattern.
Because these photos aren't wonderful, I thought I'd send you over to see something that IS amazing. I love handmade glass pieces and I must say that once I win that ever-elusive lottery I will be purchasing one of these!! Be sure to scroll down.
