Hoje, finalmente acabei-o - It's oficial: The quilt is finished

O quilt que comecei a fazer para a minha filha ficou finalmente PRONTO. Demorou bastante tempo a fazer pois os blocos dos corações são feitos usando a técnica do paper-piecing e depois do topo pronto todos os blocos escuros foram acolchoados à mão. Foi um trabalho demorado mas que adorei fazer e voltarei a repetir. Os quadrados dos corações  levaram ainda uma bordadura à máquina para dar relevo, depois foi só coser o binding e já está Prontinho.

My daughter's quilt is finally finished. I think I'm gonna call it Catarina's Hearts, Catarina it's her name of course. It took me a long time to finish it for the heart blocks are partially paper pieced and the dark ones were hand quilted. It's a hard task but I did love to hand quilt and I'm certainly going to repeat it. Then all I had to do was the binding. To be quicker I did a machine sewed binding. It turned quite well and it was much quicker.

I have to thank my DH and my son who are standing on chairs in order to hold the quilt
