Finished - Amanda at scrandasmusings


At last, my Home is Where the Heart is quilt is finished. It's been my first attempt at free piecing and wonky letters and was great fun to do. I've hand quilted it using big embroidery stitches and perle cotton and although it looks a bit wonky in the photograph I'm convincing myself that it's just because it's been folded up for a while! I've got a few other things to get on with now, but will certainly make another quilt in this style in due course - there's still lots of blank wall space to be filled!
