BACK TO THE UFO

Once I had finished Alison's Quilt I got back to my UFO and as I had done a fair bit of it before Alison's arrived I soon managed to get it completed. The quilting is the type given us to do by Ann Fahl, from the Quilting Challenge group.
Today I have sorted backings out for two more UFO's....Go me!!!!
I call this quilt - Cottage in a Wood - after a little nursery rhyme I used to sing to Rebecca and my girls when they were tiny...
Front...
close up of cottage...
close up of quilting...
Tree...
another tree..
and another...
well it is a wood...
the back...
close up of back...
In a cottage in a wood
A little man at the window stood
Saw a rabbit running by
Knocking at his door
Help me Help me sir he said
Or the hunter will shoot me dead
Come little rabbit come with me
Happy we will be.
You do actions to this and it is great fun as I demonstrated at my group on Saturday.
Oh yes,
many thanks to Polly who gave me the fabric for the binding, it worked a treat Polly. Cheers.
Every quilt should have one...
a quilt stand!!!!!
hahahaha, don't you love those socks!
