Paintbox has been waiting patiently to have the hand quilting completed
since - believe it or not - 2015!!!
I quilted up the last block four days ago and had the binding on
two days ago.
I should have quilted in the wider border and only really noticed
the wrinkles when this photo was taken - I think I can very carefully
hand quilt following the straight line design of the machine quilting.
Hopefully it will work because I'm not taking off the binding.
The hand quilting is minimal, the centre 'petal' in each small square
is quilted in the ditch, difficult to see, and machine quilted good old
straight lines in the sashing.
The block design is Windmills from the beautiful
Cultural Fusion Quilts

Paint Box measures 40" square
We're well into the colder, wet weather here now, our Japanese Maple
