I knew I was getting close to finishing this one but surprised myself by how close!

hand quilted & labelled..

with some vintage buttons added to the mix

saying that though, I had to walk away from it about 6 inches from the end of the binding as I really didn’t want this project to be ticked off the list! I have loved every stitch.  You can read about the journey here

Mum finished hers too (waaaaaay before me!)

Funny, we ended up with similar subject matter but the results are totally different!  You can see clearer pics of all mum’s embroideries here  &   mine over here

some notes ::

a correspondence project between me & my mum spanning a couple of years.

red & white fabric blocks  were swapped in letters so we each had the same prints.

we each made 40 embroidery blocks & swapped one

block size = 6″

my finished quilt measures approx 70″ x 70″

all  embroideries were either traced or drawn. I used this method a lot too

It’s been a joy.
