I'm so proud of him and all the work he put into this quilt.
He was involved in everything, from designing it in EQ7, painting all the fabric, most of the pinning, all the piecing, some of the pressing and helping with basting and quilting. But don't worry, if you want to make this quilt - I wrote up the instructions!
He's been very understanding that the quilt would be posted off as soon as it was finished and wouldn't be back for a few months, but was thrilled to have it back, especially now the days are getting cooler. His favourite part is the soft minky backing. The aqua wouldn't have been my instinctive choice, but it actually contrasts really nicely, and I'm glad I let him choose!
He hasn't had much time for quilting recently (and he needed a break after this effort) but he's already eyeing-off new fabrics!
Well done, James!
