This project has been a lengthy make in the midst, I knew it would as I wanted to make a quilt which was totally handmade, firstly, I English Paper Pieced (EPP) the squares of lovely fabric, which are in lovely shades of blues and creams.
This quilt is double bed size, in a favourite colour combination of mine, it has appliqué butterflies which were firstly hand embroidered.
Then by hand I sewed seed beads to make the trails of the flutterby's shimmer in the light. Instead of binding I have made a crocheted edging in a mercerised thread, using a 1.75mm hook.
Hope you like?
