Zig-Zag Finish!

All done and I'm quite happy! I have enjoyed making this quilt. Hmm, I wonder how the raffle will go?It seemed a lot of quilting while I was doing it, but now it is finished not such a great task.


It has been a busy week - lots of get-togethers with friends! I've been doing a bit of arm-twisting this week and now I'm going to get in touch with Christine of Once Upon a Quilt ... to find out details of quilts and laundry bags needed for our soldiers in Afghanistan - crazy me with three patients (all doing well!), I am still saddened to think of our brave men so far from home, maybe we can create a little bit of comfort!
Happy weekend!

Dear Lurline
You made a wonderful quilt, and quilting the lines, following the stripes ist great. Not all quilts need an allover quilting or flowers as to contrast simple stripes.
Great job.
Thanks for sharing.
Excuse my english please.

Well done Lurline - quilting lines look perfectly straight to me......I have a friend who also has completed some laundry bags....that puts you in the same ''generous'' category as her in my books :)

We call your zig zag a Roman Road. But what ever name, your quilt looks precious.
I'll have to go some to make mine look as good :-)
