FINISHED !!!

Yes. "Allsorts" the applique album quilt with 96 blocks each 4½" square (and then sashed so the quilt got a decent size), is now FINISHED.


Quilted, bound and signed (with a pigma-pen on the back, but signed !)
And here it is :-)
First block sewn on June 1st 2003 (!), quilting started October 29th, 2007, last stitch on binding taken yesterday evening, April 16th, 2008.
Hand applique. Hand quilting.
Go me :-)

Heartful congratulations, Tilde ! I'm in awe, and your handquilting is absolutely gorgeous !
I've loved that quilt since the very first picture you've shown of it, and I tried hard to resist starting such one with all my Batiks... :>) Now I think I'm going to dive into that project, but first I'll have a try on that back-basting applique technique...

THANKS for the inspiration and for the helpful information you give, dear !

Smiles from my little corner of the world...

Wow! I am REALLY impressed. Your quilt is simply fantastic. 96 different applique motifs topped with fabulous hand quilting (love those knot!) Good job!

PS Seven years doesn't seem like a very long time to finish a work of art like that.
