Update on The Promised Land Quilt...
Dia Duit, yet again, QuiltNess has done a superb job with the quilting. Ness told me she used 5 metres of wadding for this little baby. The bed skirt and top quilt I overlocked all the edges and double stitched the skirt onto the quilt top. I made the pillow sham separate. From the pic you can see the stitching of the bed skirt. The bed skirt took the length of the fabric, I had at 4 1/2 yards, yes a whole lot of hand stitching of binding to sew down. Little sister came in the process and helped me to cut the binding on the bias. I didnot have enough fabric left for the binding, what a job I had trying to colour match the binding. In the end, I chose black, but it had to be the right shade. Yes I found it, will have an updated photo once the process of binding is done. I am so so happy with this one. Before holidays I spent one day making a bolster for the caravan. Hmmmm when we bought we didnot try the bed for length for DH, yes, his feet hung over the edge...grin...I was right....
Update -the now completed quilt/bedspread with bolster.
