A March finish

I really do need a new quilt holder this one just isn't doing it right..... hahahaha..... I said " Don't stretch it when you hold it"   hmmmmm  and then the wind came so it looks a bit out of shape but you get the general idea I think.....   this is my "Friends in Stitching" BOM quilt and I'm very pleased with the end result even if I say so myself. I might try and get a better photo when my friends come on Tuesday, they know how to hold a quilt properly hehehehe.

I did the quilting with the new..... Flossie.....sewing machine  and it did make the job a lot easier, the large throat sure makes all the difference.


Here is the quilt label.... each of our members received one from Sarah who is the organiser of our online group and the lady who keeps us on track,  it also came with a tea bag and a little card with a beautiful verse (here), I posted about it earlier..... thank you Sarah it was a lovely surprise.
