Polly's quilt

Polly arrived on 090909 - isn't she lucky!  She is the first little baby for my good friend Kate in Melbourne.  I am so excited for them, I'm sure they will be wonderful parents and she'll be a beautiful little girl! 

I'm so excited to have this finished and on it's way down to Polly!   It will arrive tomorrow, so I hope Kate likes it!

I really need to learn machine quilting though - this hand quilting takes SOOOO long!!!  It is beautiful though!

  2. its so so beautiful! LOVE it! I'm handquilting my Heather Ross mermaid quilt and it is taking forever... I'm almost sick of looking at the color combo- LOL!

  3. I am AMAZED that you had the patience to hand quilt it! But it really makes it, those little stitches! It looks Beautiful! Well done!!

  4. Thanks Kate, how do I reach Deb Louie?

    Thank you Euphoria, yes hand quilting takes forever doesn't it?! I loved it again once it was finished! :)

    Thank you Team NE, I've hand quilted all of my quilts. I really do love the look of it.

    I know hand quilting takes forever. But you make ME want to do it, if I can make it look that pretty. =oD
