My Blue Quilt – Finished at Last

 

This lovely quilt top was made by my sweet friends while I was in hospital after a not-so-typical hysterectomy. The only criteria was that the block had to have some blue, as that is my favourite colour. I was presented the quilt top and it took me ages to get it quilted because I just couldn’t make up my mind on the patterns! πŸ˜€ Sometimes you just need to let the quilt speak to you in its own time.
