Completing 'Le Jardin Quilt'

Now that everything has been unpacked and put into place, I am in a position to finish the beautiful free project designed by Bronwyn Hayes of Red Brolly Designs for the Girls Own Stitching Club called 'Le Jardin Quilt'. Before I left Switzerland I had finished the nine individual blocks and had put them to one side until I was in a position to work on them again.



All my beautiful Tilda fabrics are now available for me to pick out fabrics for the border, binding and backing. So many to choose from, which one shall I pick?



You may recall I finished the last block only a week or two before moving. Since then I have printed off the instructions for finishing off the quilt.



The next stage was piecing together the nine individual blocks into one central panel which, I had the chance to do this weekend.


Now I need to add the borders, make a 'quilt sandwich' with the batting and backing, quilt the layers together, trim it up and finally, add the binding and any embellishments to the quilt. It shouldn't take too long and I am looking forward to showing you the finished quilt!
