A finished quilt

on

I posted previously about a quilt I was making but then couldn’t post more because it was a 40th birthday gift for my elder daughter.  She has since had her birthday so I can now show the finished item.  A king sized quilt.The quilt was made from seven shirts and I had seen the idea on Pinterest.

I laid out the pieces to make sure no pieces the same were together.

Once I had joined the cover it then had the woollen wadding and backing fabric added before being quilted.

The next task was to make the binding.  I chose a dark burgundy that was left over in my stash of fabrics.

The final piece was to embroider the label for the back.
