Delilah - done!
This week has been all about getting Delilah finished. Lots of semi-straight lines quilted approx 1.5 inches apart. I say semi-straight lines because I struggled to get them perfect due to the size and heaviness of the quilt. Once washed and dried I'm sure no-one will see the slight imperfections in my quilting.
Measuring 108 inches x 72 inches this is a whopper - due to be a runner on a superking sized bed. Given only the brief of 'pink and green, vintage style' by my sister in law, I think I've done well. Despite not loving it at first, I've come round and I like the way it looks on the eldest's bed!
The back is pieced using some solid pink, pink gingham and a massive piece of Deliah range print (not sure which one!). This picture shows just how 'organic' my quilting is! Forgive me.
