The finished article

This is what happened to the drawing I started with.
I was happy with it when I first finished it but now it is due to arrive in Britain, I'm overcome with nerves. Silly I know. It is tiny , only 12" square and took me a total of 26 hours to make. That's nearly 11 minutes per square inch. Crouched over my sewing machine with a high powered magnifier to see the weeny little stippling stitches. I must be crazy

Sue you had no need to be nervous about how this was going to be received - I just love it. The quilting is unbelievable. Have emailed you separately and will blog about it after work tomorrow. Thank you so much. I am so glad I signed up for this swap.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I have some good friends in Australia, and would love to visit there one day. Your appliqued quilt is wonderful and I love your blog.
