Finally Quilted

Well I have finally completed the quilting on that lovely quilt that is headed for Chile. It was presented to the family yesterday in our church service. I have been meaning to post the pictures but have been a bit busy so here it is:

Outlining the waratah flowers in the centre of each block seemed the way to go to make them stand out. On my daily walk I collected various shaped and sized gum leaves so that I was able to trace around them for the  borders of the  waratah blocks and butterflies flying around the yellow border between the embroidered words seemed to tie the words all together.

 Overall I think it came together very well and I'm sure it will be a wonderful reminder of the people back home in Australia supporting them.

     Hope you are having a creative day.
