Finished quilttop (almost)

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about the quilt I was making. A landscape quilt with a little river, some mountains, a house, a tree and a sun. The top is now almost finished. The only thing left to do is embroider names and a date, and because I can’t show those, this is the last moment I can make pictures to show.

The first thing added since last time was a little bird.

The cows moved to the left bank of the river and I decided that the little pigs and lambs had to be left out of the quilt. Then the flowers and leaves were drawn, cut and put on.

Every flower and leave has been sewn and there is a little embroidery too.

And then one last picture, of the complete quilttop.

This is an order from one of my neighbours. His daughter is getting married and this is going to be his gift to her.  All elements are what he asked for. Now he wants me to embroider both names and the date of the wedding and after that I can make a proper quilt out of it with a back and some batting. I’m not going to quilt a lot, just a few lines.

Groetjes, Dorien
