Truly Scrumptious

A couple of weeks ago I finally picked up my Truly Scrumptious quilt. Leanne works at Esme's in Launceston and quilted it for me on the store's quilting machine.


 I am so happy with the daisy design we choose and Leanne's quilting is fabulous.  Here are some close-ups of most of the blocks.









The backing fabric is Astor Manor by 3 Sisters. It works really well with the Allspice Tapestry fabrics on the front.


Do you remember how I 'ummed and ahhed' over the appliqued squares? So glad you all convinced me to include them!


So that's my OPAM finish for February. At the moment, I'm working on a Friends in Stitching swap project. It's a secret so can't share just yet. Bye for now.

  3. It looks fantastic! My sewing friends and I have had lots of discussions about machine quilting over stitcheries and none of us have been game to get it done. Yours looks great. I will have to tell them to have a look.

  12. Thank you for showing the close-ups of the blocks. I have been doing stitcheries for quilts lately and have wondered if the quilting should go right over the embroidery. Yours looks good!

  42. Oh look at this sweetness. I'm so taken with this I don't even know what to say. Wait. I do. I went back to see if I could find a "favorite block" to comment on but I found myself completely unable. I love them ALL. What a treat in the afternoon over coffee. Ahh, my spirit is lifted and too, my spirit giggled when my eyes fell upon your little appliqued squares that you 'ummed and ahhed' over. They're too sweet!

    What a happy visit.

  43. I have been following your blog to see the progress on your Truly Scrumptious top and I'm thrilled with how you finished it off! It looks beautiful.
    I finished mine today but did it a little bit different than you...I will be sending mine out to the longarm quilter on Monday when the post office reopens.
