Finished......

Very excited to share with you my little wool circles project all quilted and finished.  I really loved working on this little project and I am really pleased with the finished quilt.


It is only a very small quilt (approx 12" x 15") but there is a lot to look at and the pebbling in the background adds a lot of texture which I am not sure the photographs show very well.


The backing fabric and binding are both cotton print fabrics and I wasn't sure how well they would all work together with the wool, especially for the quilting but, I needn't have worried because the quilting went quite smoothly.  This is what the back looks like.....


It was quite difficult quilting close to the circles as some of them stand quite proud of the background fabric making it a bit awkward to quilt evenly.



If you look closely you will see a few quilting 'wobbles' but overall I am very happy with it.


I did have a bit of a panic when I was hand stitching the binding on the back as I suddenly heard a little noise which sounded suspiciously like a bead falling to the ground.  I turned the quilt over to see that there was a bead missing from the middle of one of the circles (I must have squashed it with my ruler when I squared everything up.)


Anyway, I replaced it and I am hoping it isn't too obvious where it was. What do you think?

  5. Wow, this is so pretty! Love the background quilting. I cannot see where you replaced a bead, but I know it must have been a scary moment. It happened to me when I was quilting an Easter quilt with sequins and one of the sequins broke when I was moving my hoop.

  9. Liebe Christine,
    was für ein schönes Meisterstück, ich bin richtig begeistert. Applizieren mit Wollstoff steht auch schon seit längerem auf meiner to-do Liste. Bisher waren für mich noch viele Fragezeichen bei diesem Thema vorhanden, ich glaube ich traue mich demnächst auch einmal.
    Liebe Grüße
    Steffi
