A purple Red Delicious

Thank you all for your lovely comments on the finishing of HOHRH. I enjoyed reading all of them!

Much faster than I expected I finished my first quilttop, Red Delicious. I started in January and you have seen the variety of blocks come by on my blog. My summerholidays started last week and I had plenty of time to assemble the top this week. This morning I finished the border and now it is sandwiched and ready to quilt! I am so excited about it, and apart from some minor things I am really satisfied with the way it turned out.

There's a little stitched item finished too, Pear Tree from LHN. I did finish the stitching, but decided not to tinish it as an ornament. I think I'll stitch up the other eleven ornaments of this series and get them into a quilt at the end.

Joke, your quilt turned out stunning!
Love your idea of using the LHN ornaments as quilt squares. they would make a lovely quilt. I may borrow your idea.

I think turning the LHN ornaments into a quilt is wonderful too! Your quilting is looking great. I can't wait to see what you do next.

Beautiful stitching and sewing, congratulations!

I think the quilttop is beautiful! Quilting is something I'd like to learn someday in future. Nowadays I'm too busy stitching (and my time is limited, I've two little boys at home and a job as a teacher), there's no time left for something new. But I enjoy watching your first attempt, and it succeeded really well!

Prachtig is ie Joke, wat een mooie kleuren zijn het toch.
Je mag er super trots op zijn hoor en zult veel complimenten krijgen op dit unieke werkstuk.
Dat zal vast weer een aparte quilt worden met borduurtjes erin.
Jij zal het van de winter niet koud hebben, de hoeveelste quilt is dit dan?
Knuffels Chrissie
