I have set myself another challenge to finish Lucy's gumdrops quilt this month.
The nights are cooler so quilts are a must, I have a class starting in a few weeks with Claire Turpin to make her Lone Star Quilt so time to get on with finishing what I have started.

I have hand stitched inside the middle squares and the rest of the quilt I have used the 'stitch in the ditch method' for quilting. I am not overly confident at machine quilting yet so this one was a good practice. I am happy with the way it has turned out.
I signed this one up on a Lovely Year of Finishes in January and I have only now finished it. I have finished others in between but neglecting my blogging.
One day I will make a log cabin quilt totally in Liberty !

I have finally finished my Liberty Tana Lawn Quilt. It has taken a long time from when I bought the fabric 2 years ago. I had it professionally quilted and over the last few nights finished the binding. 8.8 metres of hand stitching, which I love but was glad to finish.
I love the texture, feel and warmth of this quilt. It is the biggest one I have made yet and it has only inspired me to make more Liberty Quilts.
The Pattern is from one of my favourite quilting books, Sunday Morning Quilts.

|about 400 scraps to make the gumdrops|
|lots of stitching|
|backing and binding|
The pattern is from the gorgeous Sunday Morning Quilts book. I want to make nearly all the quilts in this book.
Now I just have to put it all together and work out a less time consuming way to quilt this one.
