YOU HAVE ENOUGH QUILTS WHEN YOUR SOUL IS FILLED,
YOUR CREATIVITY SATISFIED
AND YOUR FINGERS JUST WON'T WORK ANYMORE

Jo Morton Quilt

Finally finished my Jo Morton quilt. I bought the book and the background fabric at the Sydney Quilt Show last year. Well, this years show os on again in just over two weeks. I remember when I got the book I said I wanted to make every quilt in the book. Hmmm, twelve months later and I have just finished the first......this could take longer than imagined.
I like to take photos of the "Before" and "After" quilt. I'm always amazed at how different the quilt is after quilting.
And this is it all washed and wrinkled....but that doesn't show up in this photo.

This is a wonderful quilt! I made one like it a few years ago and it is still one of my favorites. Nice job!

I so love seeing quilts once they have been washed.

I bought a roll off batting 80/20 not heirloom cotton (a copy) it washes up so beautiful, have to see if I can get more.

cheers
