Tree Top Done

I really hope you're not tired of seeing this quilt top. I've been showing it to you step by tiny step. I'm thinking that this is a noteworthy step however, so here's a picture.

Borders have been added, so the top is finished. It does need a really good press, and then I can baste it ready for quilting. I had hoped to be further along by now, but I do know I can have it finished in time for the suprise presentation.

The kids and I had fun at the movies yesterday - we saw the new Simpsons movie. Of course the kids loved it, and I enjoyed it too. The cinema was really full, I haven't seen it that busy in a little while. When we came out of the theatre, the queue was huge, we're glad we went to an earlyish session.

Nothing much more of note happening here ... I'll catch up with you all soon! x o x

The "Tree Quilt" looks wonderful and will be a special surprise for the lucky recipient. I really like the cornerstones in the framing strips. They give a nice little splash of colour and tie the blocks together well.

Not to speak about the one published in my last "Australian P&Q" issue, which I got last Friday ! Congratulations, dear, you deserve it and I'm soooo rpoud to know you !

The tree quilt has looked great the whole way along, but I think the border adds the perfect finish. Lovely. Where did you get this particular version of the tree block, is it an online one? I'd love to know!

Hi, Tazzie! It looks so pretty! I love seeing intricate blocks like this all assembled in a top.

It is so fun to watch a quilt growing from one block to the finished top to the quilted and bound project. You can't share too many pictures as far as I'm concerned!

Susan said...

I'm not tired of seeing this top at all - love seeing them progress from piles of fabrics to finished quilts. It's looking great :)

Tazzie, this is an exceptionally wonderful quilt. I am intimidated by piecing that with all the diagnonal seams. You have done a beautiful job of sewing it and it is stunning.

It's looking great Tazzie. You are so fast. I love your friend's quilt with the bowties - the little diamonds look great.

Just love those trees. You've been very busy while I've been away, Tazzie!
