While the Footy is on

I started this last night and have been making headway today.   It isn't taking all that long and I am surprised at how much I have actually achieved.  All the tree flowers have been quilted now is the task of doing the fill in which is going to take quite a bit of time and then I can start on the border flowers but I think that I will quilt out to that.  I am not a great fan of linen so I do worry about the stretch factor.  By doing the middle first I am hoping to avoid any bubbly bits, have managed to quilt them out so far.    And no I can't claim this as a quilt that I have made it was made by Karen and it is all button holed by hand.

Ooh Thankyou so much Amanda. Please don't be impressed by my hand work girls. I only do it by hand because I am absolutely dangerous to mankind on a machine!!
