My Quilt is here!

My Quilt from Geta finally arrived. I was getting a little impatient. It looks gorgeous in the photos but as for most quilts it is even better in real life. Geta is incredibly generous and is having another giveaway at the moment. I haven't entered this one as I thinking that would be greedy. Believe me I want to be greedy and try but am resisting!

I also received this pattern I won from Celine at A Few Loose Threads. I was trying to win the Quiltmakers 100 blocks magazine and won this great pattern. I am actually better off not winning the magazine because of course I will buy it and now I have a pattern too

I finally put the binding on this. My son helped (?) me take the photo.


  1. Congratulations, Anne!! Can't wait to see your goodies. All looks wonderfu. Have a great day.

  2. Hello Ann,

    I hate to have creases on my quilts, so you can wash the shadow trapunto quilt if you want to remove them.
    Put the quilt in water and let it to soak for a few minutes. Then put it in the washing machine for a short cycle of spinning (2-3 minutes, 300-400 rotations/minute).
    Take the quilt out of the washing machine, smooth it and lay it on a flat surface to dry.

    I am glad you like it !
