50th Birthday quilt

After getting the top together i sent it to Fabulous Fiona who kindly said she'd quilt it for me. The top arrived back Tuesday & i spent sometime Wednesday adding the binding. Not a good day to pick as it was freezing that day & i could hardly hold the quilt despite wearing gloves. The cold affected the arthritis something shocking.
Out door shot so you can see the colour of the border better.
And some close ups.



Fiona did a wonderful job. Each block has it's own custom quilting & feathers in the border. Love feathers. Thankyou ever so much Fiona. Thankyou again to all who sent me blocks to make my fabulous memory quilt of turning 50.

Happy Stitching,
