Quilt for sale!















Here it is, finished at last!  It has taken many hours of work over the past months, all by hand.
The small squares are 1 inch squares, and the overall size is 24.5 inches or 62 cm square.
The cloth is 100% cotton, as are the sewing and quilting threads. The wadding/batting is made from sheep fleece, and the edging is polyester satin ribbon, sewn with polyester thread.

It is now for sale- NZ$600 or GB£330 or US$500  .

I wonder if it will go?   The Pirate is wearing two hats....one hopes it will sell, we need to eat!!  The other hopes it doesn't as it could be seen as a bit of family history.

It is lovely. What is the size, please. It appears about 2' square, but I can't judge from the picture.

This is beautiful. Makes me wish I were rich.

I understand the dilemma between selling and not.

Enjoy your day.

It is great...beautiful. I'm sure it will sell. I especially like the satin binding...unusual but practical I think.

I'm quite pleased that it ended up square after all those little seams!!

Beautiful stitching, and choice of fabrics. Do you live in Whanganui? I saw the Durie Hill Elevator photos? I'm in Marton, hopped to you from Susan Heather. And where in Scotland are the others? My Mum grew in south of Glasgow, in Cambuslang. Greetings from Jean
