Completed wall quilt and our tea group meeting





So, I have finally completed the quilt.  All stitching is done on 3 layers of cotton fabric. (two of yellow and one white) I used a thicker needle so it would easy to pass the thread through 3 layers. There is no batting added to this piece, only the fabric layers.

I wonder how many thousands of little stitches are there.....


All fabric and thread used are remnants from here and there. I didn't buy anything new.

some beaded tassels too..

  1. Your quilt turned out so well, Gaia - all those vertical quilting lines must have taken a lot of time. Beautiful! I'm a bit envious of your tea gathering! Lots of pretty sights along your walking route. Have a great day.

  2. Your quilt is lovely! It must feel satisfying to use up some of your materials.

    It was great to finally meet you! Thank you for making the 2-hour trek to Nicol's, as well as the sweet floral brooch. Your camera takes great photos.

  4. Your new wallhanging is beautiful Gaia! Love all the details and the beads at the bottom :) It was so nice to finally meet up with you after a few years of chatting together through our blogs. Love those hydrangeas! You have some nice areas to walk through.
