This is not really a new quilt so much as a do-over. I made this quilt from "Once Upon A Quilt" and did two major things wrong. I used wadding which was too thick and I tried using invisible thread *hisss, evil stuff*.  Plus, I was probaby overreaching my quilting abilities.

Being very unhappy with the end result, I conned Mum into unpicking it for me and requilted it over thinner wadding. So, here are the pics. Please excuse any typos, I think my keyboard is going.








You can (hopefully) see that it now hangs flat against the wall instead of curling away.
