Quilting

Yesterday I picked up my Sundial quilt from my Long-arm quilter, Katrina. As usual she worked her magic and my quilt has been enhanced with the designs she has quilted on it.
I asked for a 'less is more' approach to her choice of quilting it and It has been achieved and my quilt is soft and beautiful.
I took some photos to show some of the quilting and I just love how the centre looks with it's cross-hatch,swirls and feathers.


 
 

 

 
 

 
 
I managed to get the binding  stitched onto the front edge, ready now to be rolled over and slip stitched down. A label and then onto my bed for the coming Winter.
