Thank Downton it's finished...

The long-armer managed to quilt my giant star in just a couple of days, and I picked it up a week later. However, with us doing the kitchen refurbishment every evening and at weekends, there has been little time to sew the binding on... until Downton Abbey came back on the television this weekend :-) Great start to the new season, and a perfect way to sit glued to the sofa for ninety minutes and and stitch the binding!

So here it is... a giant 'made in cherry' star...


with snow white borders...


quilted in a design called raindrops...


using a thread called wind...


which blends perfectly into the patterned fabric...


but adds a lovely depth to the whole quilt, and gorgeous detail to the plainer fabrics...


and is thoroughly approved of by the two onlookers, who have already tested it for warmth and comfort ;-)

  1. Fran que bonita que ha quedado, me gusta mucho, es un acolchado sencillo y realza mucho todo el trabajo realizado. Y qué rapidez, así dá gusto.
    Me encanta la serie Downton Abbey, no sé cuando la volverán a poner otra vez aquí, quizás pronto, la temporada pasada intentaba no perder ni un capítulo.
    Besos.

  4. Love this too- I have a scrappy quilt to make at some point soon, and have a giant star on my list of want to do, this could tick both boxes! Ange x
