Lovers Knot Quilt ~ Completed
It took me twenty years, but it is done. My previous posts about this quilt are here, here and here. Quilting, border and binding done. It is not perfect but I am just glad I managed to finish it. I machine quilted in the ditch for the patchwork; quilted knots using a template for the border (see 2nd photo) and a machine sewn blue polka-dotted binding. Can you see the puckering in the denim backing (3rd photo)? I will keep this quilt for myself to remind me how far this has come to getting completed. It is full of flaws but there were valuable lessons learnt. Hopefully, my next quilt/patchwork will be better. I have quite a number lined up since I went on a shopping spree.
