"It takes ages to finish a quilt you're not working on!"

I'm on a bit of a roll with my quilting!  Here are some photos:
The first one has had a title added to the top since I took this photo.  It is called "Abandoned At An Op Shop" which I have hand stitched in chain stitch on a calico background.  I have collected all those little embroidered items at opshops over the years (some have been given to me by friends who found them), and rather than frame them all separately which would cost a fortune and I haven't got the space on our wall anyway), I decided to put them all on a wall hanging.  I've had this project on the back  burner for a few years, but it was the item selected for a monthly UFO challenge I am participating in, so it had to be done!

The tie quilt now has a border.  I used the remainder of the ties on the quilt  by cutting them into lengths, joining the strips and cross cutting them.  I've very happy with this, and have the backing ready to complete it soon.

This is an awful photo unfortunately.  The standard lamp messed up the colours for the camera and no amount of fiddling has fixed it.  I'll have to take another photo outside in daylight.  I was going to donate this quilt to the aged care home, but I really like it on our couch, so am going to keep it.
