Hi everyone, I finished a quilt for my bed this month.
Here is my MOONGLOW which is a special Jinny Beyer block a month quilt I started a while back and only now finally got the quilting finished.I had stalled on this for ages, so my lovely mum helped me finish the quilting for my birthday.






It was pretty hard to do the mariners compass, they were quite tricky.
I love purples, turquoisey seagreens and black so its perfect for my bed.
thanks for looking, hope you all like it.
here is my youtube video with a bit more of the quilt

Are you sure you like it? I mean, isn't there something wrong with it? Don't you want to get rid of it? Cause if you do, I'll be kind enough to take it off your hands. I mean, y'know, cause it's so not absolutely gorgeous and all  Grin

I am slowly finishing all my quilts. I love patchwork, just got to take the time to get the quilting done.

ASOLUTELY GORGEOUS!!  FABULOUS!  I LOVE IT! 
I have been wanting to get a quilt that is done in purples and this would be the one I'd choose!  It is beautiful!  It would go great in my bedroom--I have lavender colored walls. 

I applaud your patience.  You've worked hard and should be proud!
