A promise fullfilled - well almost!

I've already shown you one small project that I made on the Club Quilt retreat a couple of weeks ago but the main project I took along was one that is very special to me.... I don't know why it seems to have taken me weeks to finally photograph it....hmmm!

When my Aunt passed away this time last year she left an unfinished quilt behind that she had asked me to complete and I'm pleased to say the top is finally done.... It's a beautiful quilt and I think she would be very happy with it!

My Aunt had done a lot of the work and had finished down to the bird row which she had already half stitched.... I did the rest. When I look at my contribution now it doesn't seem like much but it took me the best part of the weekend!

The vine at the top will have yo-yo flowers added after quilting

That pattern is called "Country Hearts" by Patwork Pumpkin.

So now I just have to find some backing and send it off to be quilted!

Until next time.....


  1. Your quilt top looks lovely. I'm sure your Aunt would have been very pleased with it.

  2. You have done a great job finishing the quilt top.What a wonderful way to remember your Aunt.

  3. Oh it's lovely.... your Aunt would be so happy to see it finished...... very cute pattern...

  4. Very nice. Your Aunt would be proud of you to have got it done and what a nice memory

  5. Beautiful! I think your Aunt is smiling down on that quilt :0)

  6. That's such a lovely reminder of your Aunt and even more special because you've both made the quilt.

  7. How lovely to have that beautiful quilt made by you & your Aunt. Very special. Tracee xx

  8. It will be an absolutely lovely quilt - you both have done a wonderful job on piecing and appliquéing! And it will be extra special for you, since it is a project you both have worked on - enjoy it!


Thanks so much for your comments...... It's nice to know i'm not just talking to myself!
