It took me 2 years and now it is a Finish

This one has been a long time in the making.  I am estimating 2 years but it could be even longer.  This project has also been on my "Accountability / UFO List" so I am pleased to be able to cross it off there.

So please allow me to share with you my Teddlywinks Quilt........ in its completed form  (as of 6ish this evening) :o)

Some close ups.

and because I love a quilt rolled up ....

and whilst I am on a roll I am going to attempt to get this Christmas Quilt over the line.

I had my man down on his hands and knees this morning helping me spray baste it and it has been hanging over the couch all day as my inspiration to finish the Teddlywinks one.

It is now looking like this, with one block quilted and the other 8 plus the borders to go.

I am also going to link up again with

Happy sewing,


  1. Your Teddlywinks quilt is beautiful. The close ups of your stitching look perfect!

  2. What a beautiful quilt with a lot of hand stitching! Your Christmas quilt is adorable too!

  3. I love the detailed stitching on the quilt - fantastic. You should be proud of this one.

  4. Your embroidery is amazing! I don't know how you do it! I love quilts, but I just don't have what it takes to follow through on such an intensely laborious project like quilts. I do small projects like soft toys. Congratulations on the big finish!!!! (I'm visiting from Sunni's blog, by the way).

  5. Congrats on the finish ;-)
    your hand stitching is beautiful!

  6. very nice! you sure put a lot of hand work in that quilt.

  7. Your quilt is beautiful, I vote for you. I love all the close up details of your work, beautiful stitching.

  8. well done, both quilts are gorgeous!
    Looks like you will be done in no time.

  9. Congratulations on finishing your beautiful quilt

  10. That is one gorgeous quilt! You did an amazing job!
