I have a finish - ta-da!! But with Storm Ciara raging outside I have only been able to take photos inside - when I did just go out I could hardly open the back door!
It's been a long time since I have had a finish post so forgive me my excitement. This is an old WIP that was on my Projects to Finish list and it's my first finish for Finish Along Q1.
I posted a brief history of this one earlier in the year - click here.
I used wool wadding in a quilt for the first time. I played around with wool as a second layer when I was quilting my Dream Big samples for the workshop I ran in November last year, but I have never used it as the only wadding for a quilt. I have to say that it quilted up beautifully and has given a puffiness to the quilt that I don't see with cotton. The hope is that it will also be warmer and if my daughter is correct there's supposed to be a lot of freezing weather coming our way this month!
It feels wonderful to get to cross something of my list and, even better, I think it's already been claimed for a bed!
