SUCCESS (sort of)

I am surprised and delighted to have got the quilt this far - its only about poster size, intended as a wall hanging. It certainly wasn't the small easy beginners project I'd envisaged!

I've been attempting to do free quilting in the green border but it isn't going very well at all - it is quite hard to do, but the problem I've been experiencing is that I keep getting a long "jumped" stitch and I don't know why.

Anyway, I AM working on an altered art project too, but it's for the ABAA Challenge so you can't see it yet ....

Looks like a wonderful piece of work Rosie (and I've checked it with the book below!)
You have such a lot of patience to cut all those little pieces out - and then stitch them together!!

Wow, I think this is more than a beginner piece, lot's of small pieces there and you did a wonderful job on it. My first and last quilt took me a long time too but I did enjoy the hand quilting, very tiny stitches and my teacher made me take them out if they weren't LOL, she was great though.
