First Quilt TAKE TWO!!!!
SO I was rushing and I bunged my quilt in for a quick wash with my new blouse COMPLETELY forgetting it was an Indian blouse and therefore not Dye fast- DISASTER!!! :(
Despite much washing and dye removal products Quilty Mk 1 was a dingy mess.
So I thought I'd do an overhaul and then realised I actually had enough fabric left to re-do the quilt completely! YAY!!!
So a busy weekend ensued and I'd pieced it together.
I used the scraps to make a border (of which I am very proud as it is traditional, use the leftovers type patchwork!!)
I bought some yummy fabric to back it with and tada- Quilt Mk 2 is ALIVE!!
And yes those beagles and that daughter have already had their mitts/bums on it *sighs*
Hmmm I wonder how my quilt 'grew' hands and legs???!!! *grins*
