Margaret Every Challenge - 3

Its finished!
I'm not that happy with it as I think I missed out a step before I added the borders and its a little wonky!!! 1cm out but it shows. I can't take the border off now so will have to live with it and put it down to experience.
It has definitely improved my quilting skills and I won't baulk at machine quilting again, but I may adopt a quilt as you go method to reduce the size of the quilt that I have to manipulate.
Now its back to the UFOs so that I can eventually begin some new work! The only thing I now need to do is think about what I'll do with all these newly finished pieces! I think I'll donate this challenge quilt, but I'm not sure how useful it will be to them with such alot of black in it!!!
The photos show some close ups of the quilting.

  1. Because it is a contemporary quilt it gets away with being wonky, only you know it was meant not to be. I love the colours.
