With love from Mum!!

After a marathon quilting effort, Maddis Charisma quilt is complete, the bindings went on last night and she woke this morning with it wrapped around her:

There were squeals of excitement to find her quilt complete. She is going away on school camp tomorrow, which would have meant I had more time to finish it but I really wanted her to sleep under it for a least one night before she went:

She is so thrilled with it!! The colours are gorgeous and I tried a bamboo wadding this time. There was a little more movement than I would have liked but it quilted up lovely!!

All it needs is a label...I was going to do it today, but havent got to it yet, and now she is home Ill be lucky to get a hold of the quilt to sew it down. The majority of it is stippled (if I close my eyes I can see stippling lol):

It now takes pride of place at the foot of her bed, replacing her well loved Horsey quilt (which isnt that far away....folded neatly in the cupboard).

She wants some new cushions from the left over scraps but I think Ill take a few days break from the machine, at least until my neck and shoulders stop aching!!!

It is beautiful!! Your work is outstanding as usual and Maddi's design is fantastic! I love it!! She looks so cute peeking out with it all wrapped around her. Stippling is still one of my favorite ways to do the quilting. It just makes things pop!
