Every stitch counts!

I have been spending a lot of time with this quilt top, Alle Fugler, by Northern Quilts lately, and now it is done and delivered to Merete for machine quilting.
It feels so great to be done with this quilt top!
Last time you saw it, it lacked the lower 1/3.
That part had some machine piecing, some appliqué and some stitchery, all in all 32 units

Hand work and colourful treats always go well together :-)
The beautiful candle is hand painted by my youngest daughter's mother in law.
She is so skilled and she urges us to burn and enjoy her candles.
Much like how I urge the recipients of my quilts to use them :-)

My dear husband never complains when I spread out on the dining room table, as long as I put away the blocks if we invite guests :-)

He likes this quilt very much, so I asked if he would like to have it for himself, as a gift from me, and he is very happy about that.
I will not be slow putting binding on it once it returns home :-)

* Wishing you a happy day *

That really is a lovely quilt and I especially love the colours. It is going to look amazing when it is quilted. Looking forward to seeing it completed.

I like your quilt of little squares. I am working on something similar-Stonefields. All the little squares are time consuming but fun to make.
