a finished quilt

I have finally finished the mini 24 block Tula Pink sampler quilt,  it has been waiting for the quilting and binding and now it is done.   I used my bernina and walking foot but still having problems re the weight and sometimes not feeding through but I will improve in time.  Each block has been quilted individually with a matching thread for the block and different patterns too and the black sashing has just been straight line quilted either side of then seams.  Finished size 33" x 38"


Overall I am happy with it and it sits on the back of my 2 seat sofa,    will probably do another one the same size for the other sofa and then use the left over 52 blocks for a larger quilt.

Also done the bee blessed block for june, called a scrappy  but classy block.There will  not be another one till september.



Another block also from the QCQAL with Alison at little bunny quilts, the Dutchman`s puzzle,  I am not so sure using the green as a background fabric is the right choice but too late to change as I have done 8 blocks and green is my favourite colour.



I have decided to ignore google + completely so anyone that has asked me to link to it it is nothing personal but I do not understand what it is all about. and it seems it effects blogger so will keep my distance.

Great finish! Love how each block is quilted differently. They seem to just float off the quilt.

Congratulations on the completion and wonderful Tula Pink sampler quilt. I'm sure you're very proud to see it on the back of your sofa. Bet it looks terrific there. Your bee blessed block is really nice and colourful and I like the green on your Dutchman`s puzzle block. Really makes the block pop :)

The Tula Pink qilt is fantastic. I really like it. The closeup of the bee blessed block shows that you have become a master piecer. Isn't it wonderful to have a record through your own blog of your progress.

Your quilt looks great well done. The dutchmans puzzle is fine do not worry. It could change depending on the sashing you use, personally I like it as it is. Like you know idea about google + I have enough trouble with blogging as it is.

Your quilt is beautiful, Margaret! Love how the colours pop against the black, and I like them dancing a bit instead of being soldiers. i like your green background on the new block--i love green!

Beautiful little quilt! It's like a box of jewels. I like the green in your block too. I think it's going to look very dramatic.
