Caverswall Quilt Cave, Joan The Shop & Helen

This quilt is 104" square! My picture doesn't do it justice you know, the colours are just gorgeous... it's one of those you have to see in person.... It was made by our Joan "The Shop" and she is absolutely thrilled with the way it turned out.
This is the back, what a job it was to get it to Joan's liking, Helen and my Mum (Gwynneth) are holding it up as high as they can reach then it falls to the stage... I'm not sure you'll get to imaging the size of it... enorrrrrrrrmous!
This is a little closer shot, I hope you can see the quilting... it was done at the Quilter's Trading Post on a long arm machine... only because Joan had to hit a deadline for finishing it.. this quilt is on it's way to Texas any day now!
Meanwhile Joan The Shop continues to make the million Daizies she needs to finish her present project... and there are many lined up to be made after that.

Helen was doing the final bits of quilting on her border, she only works on this quilt when we meet at Caverswall because she's doing that commissioned cat quilt at home, which should be ready by next weeks meeting.

More coming up! It was a very busy day.....
