A real quilt ...

as some say that it is only a real quilt when it is totally done by hand. Well this one is. I even put the borders on by hand. It helped me through the bad days.
edited: I don't agree with this for me every quilt is special and all the ones I have done so far were only done by machine.

I know it still needs a bit of ironing, but well that isn't the easiest thing to do. That probaly will happen this week. My DH bought a backing for it and also fabric for the binding, he also got my sewingmachine which is back from it's service at the dealer. When I have sandwiched it I will also do the quilting by hand, but that will have to wait a while.

At the moment it is my stitchingtime as I am busy on Nature's Home afghan and well only tree is left to stitch. So there is a finish gloring at the end of the road.

My leg hurts here and there sometimes, but I have a good day again after having thursday such a bad day. John and me went on groceries with the two of us and that went great. I even could help a bit. Thanks everyone for the compliments on the rr.

Oh no - all the work I have done on quilts and none of them are done because they aren't stitched by hand.
Your quilt is very beautiful. Congrats on such a great job. I hope you are on the mend and having better rest.

Een quilt is alleen een quilt als ie volledig met de hand is gedaan?
Een was is dan ook alleen proper als ie met de hand is gedaan?
En op het gazon kruipen we met een schaartje of bijten we het gras af?
't Is duidelijk : ik ben ook niet akkoord met die stelling!
Plezier in je hobby, dat is het belangrijkste, met de hand of met de machine is mij gelijk!
Hou je taai Judith!

Well, I'm not sure I agree LOL, but I do love handwork and your quilt is very cute.
Did your DH choose the fabric himself for you or did you give him strict instructions what to buy?

Mooie quilt zeg. En met de hand of met de machine: voor mij maakt het niets uit als het maar mooi is. Goed dat je veel hulp van John hebt.
