Luckily my grandparents have a lovely garden in which to take photographs. I think this will be my new photo shoot location of choice!
For the back, I used the one inch leftover strip from each of the blocks and a couple of large pieces of blue fabric. I have no idea how the backing square ended up so off centre, but at the point at which I knew about it (and now) I didn't care a jot. I was so elated the whole thing was together!
I am so happy to have made my first big, proper, put-it-on-the-bed, curl-up-on-the-sofa quilt!
Bring on the next one! Well, after a well earned rest for a few days. My machine and I need a breather from one another.....
