Anchors Away on Display

I've been harping on talking about my Anchors Away quilt now, for what seems like months on end, so thank goodness on Saturday night I put the final hand stitches in the binding!  And here it is. 


I had planned to photograph it against the perfect backdrop of a little fishing village called Rozel, just up the road from us.  But guess what.  It rained.  So the quilt photo shoot will have to wait until another (sunnier) day.  Looking at the forecast it could be a while.  Grrr!

But for now, here are the vital statistics.

Quilt Details
Designed and made by - Me :-)
Measures - 35" x 41"
Fabrics - Out to Sea by Sarah Jane and Kona White
Techniques - Raw edge applique (the anchor) machine pieced and machine quilted

I'm so happy to have a finish, it will be going in The Harbour Gallery  and also on my website very soon. 

By the way, I am dangerously close to 50 likers.   If you like my Anchors Away quilt, I would love  you to follow me...half way to 100 just sounds soooo much better than 48!  I might even have a giveaway in the very near future ;-)  Thank you so much and I look forward to stopping by your blogs too.
