Ta Da - At Last

Finally, I have a completed Some Kind of Wonderful quilt to share.
 
 
I finished it at a quarter to twelve the night before our blog meet last Saturday. There was no way I was going to front up without it being finished.
 
I’ve really enjoyed making this quilt. There was one stage in the middle of the year where I wondered if I would actually get it done, but then I had some time and got a wriggle on.
 
My friend Val did the quilting. Lots of free hand feathers.
 

 
She outlined the appliqué beautifully.
 

Look at all those feathers.

 
I’m not sure which is my favourite block, but I am rather partial to the suitcase, which was the only block I tailored to suit me. I just have to make sure that I do visit New Zealand in the not too distant future.

 
 
Thanks Chooky for the inspiration and the occasional whipping. I would never have attempted, let alone completed this quilt otherwise.
