Here's One I Prepared Earlier...

When I posted my miniature Grandmother's Braid quilt there was a short conversation with Susan from her comment that it would work as a full sized quilt...a top of which I just happen to have living with its friends in The Quilt Top Cupboard...the weather this morning nice enough for an outing to the backyard to hang on the fence for a photo shoot...so...for Susan...as requested...

Grandma's Braid with Goldie's Twist (Strictly Goldie)
Yes I see the two that are upside down, I'm choosing to ignore that
 
Started in a class in Williamstown some time in the distant past with Goldie of Strictly Goldie (I don't think she operates as a designer anymore, she mainly designed cloth dolls & bears) I found some photos (not blogworthy) dated Anzac Day 2007 so that must be when I finished it.

Mmm, I said it had been in the cupboard for about 10 years (although that could be when it was started, can't remember), it's only 7! Whew, that takes the pressure off actually quilting it, still aged in a single digit!!! *LOL*

Happy Stitching...

It is so lovely Annette. You are very civilised having a cupboard. Mine are hidden in bags hoping not to be discovered. Lol!
