student's quilt

One of my students at the mental health charity has finished her quilt and I thought you might like to see it. She pieced all the blocks by hand and quilted the stars. I contributed by stipple quilting the background, added the border and the binding. The finished quilt is approximately 4'8" square. (Many apologies for the bad photograph but the quilt was lying on the floor, drying out.)  It has a wonderful aged feel with the wadding having strunk slightly.

She really enjoys this session at the centre and is already thinking of another quilt in lavender and purple colours. She will be doing a more complex block next time.

In fact I must go and cut out some pieces for her now.
