Helping a friend in need.

One of the ladies in our group was making a lovely quilt (large quilt) for a relative for Xmas. To post to Perth in the new year.. Well it just so happens another relative is coming over from Perth for Xmas. Take advantage of that, get the quilt finished, hand delivered and no postage.... Good plan... UNTIL.
My friend was put into hospital for a knee replacement at 3 weeks notice... The quilt was only just started. She managed to get the top and back pieced just in time. I took it over for her and have quilted it and attached the binding. Now she is home she can get started on hand stitching the binding down and still feel like it was her work.. Well,it is her work and she has done a lovely job.
This is just stunning. The blues are beautiful.
Large splash stars free motioned in all the squares
Free motion stars and loops in the border, straight lines in the sashing.
The back with pieced spiderweb stars and hand embroidered label.
