Morrell quilt

On Thursday I took down my Morrell Quilt that I made as a Block of the Month with the lovely Di Hall, July 2008 to August 2009, machine quilted by Susie Anderson of Leura.

This is one of my favourite blocks, buttonholed broderie perse

(sorry, can't work out how to turn this around.)

This is also a favourite block, it took a whole day to machine piece this 10" block Irish chain pattern

The Morrell Quilt had been hanging in the dining room for sometime and I thought that the fabrics may need a rest. I have replaced it with a pink and brown nine patch that I made some years ago (because I did not label this quilt when finished I can't remember when).

I just remember that it took me a very long time to hand quilt.

The Morrell Quilt is so beautiful - I hope you're not just going to stash it away somewhere. The dining room must look completely different.

Hi, just came across your blog whilst googling for pictures of broderie perse. Your Morrell is absolutely stunning - LOVE your favourite block. I'm inching towards the last stages of my Morrell so it was lovely to find your pics.

Have just discovered your blog - what a beautiful Morrell ! Nice to hear someone else has had this hanging at home too - I have mine in the family room and haven't tired of it yet!
