When Pippa said she was hosting TGIFF I knew exactly what I wanted to finish to show off.
I am more relieved than you can possibly imagine, to be able to tell you that the Blue Lagoon quilt is finished! It seems to have dragged on forever, and has not been the most exciting quilt to make. But the result, as always is well worth it. I started the quilt in January, although I agreed to make for my friend it over a year before that!
I um'ed an errr'd about how to quilt it - In the end I chose to quilt it diagonally in Aurifil 50 in cream - the quilt is very "square" and the diagonals make a secondary pattern. A variegated blue thread would have been quite nice, but I stuck with conservative cream, as it wasn't for me.
Friends Marks and Rose stayed with us last week, so I put the quilt on their bed to surprise them
And of course, a photo with Ted!
