Finished not fancy

I really must find a better way to displaying quilts I want to photograph!  
This is the finished top of my second Hawthorn Aussie rules football quilt...the one for my son.  I finished the top in March.  I pinned it a few weeks ago and recently quilted it.  
Well last night I finally finished the binding.
There is nothing fancy about this quilt.  There is nothing I am proud of when it comes to the quilting.  But it is finished and with flannel on the back it will be cosy and warm.  I am not going to complain, but instead plan and put into action the need for a new sewing table....one that larger, that will support the quilts weight....to stop the puckering and pulling I experienced while trying to quilt straight lines.
I put it on DS1 bed last night while he was asleep...looking forward to his reaction this morning when he wakes up.
Happy quilting, Sue.

  2. I bet he will love it and would not notice any puckers. He will also think you are the best Mum ever for making that quilt. I also need to find a place to photograph my quilts. I have a few that need photographing which will then eventuate into a blog post. I made a Minecraft Steve pillow for a gift last year and that child said it was the best birthday present ever. You can imagine I felt pretty good that my handmade gift would get such praise. His Mum, although not a crafter, loved it also. Apparently he has it on his bed every night.

  3. I bet he loved it and will use it constantly!

    I think the quilting looks lovely and organic. And by the time this gets washed a time or two those pcukers you talk about ( and which I cant see ) will have disappeared into the awesomeness of this quilt .
