Last week I finally finished my Quilters' Blessings Quilt.
As you may remember it was a BOM of 2008 designed by Bea Galler who blogs under capricorn and her BOMs.
I finished the top in Febuary 2009 already. I first thought about machine quilting the top, but first of all I not an experienced machine quilter and second a quilting friend asked whether I'm sure that I will quilt this wonderful handiwork with a machine. So I decided to handquilt, but I had no idea how to quilt. I didn't want to quilt within the blocks. I quilted in the ditch of the cream fabric and quilted around the blocks in the mid of the sashing. I also quilted the border only with straight lines.
Last weekend I stitched the label and now everything is finished.
Now I will take care about the missing blocks of Bea's last year BOM: Once upon a time ...
