Country Quilt

Here is the country quilt I have been working on for my son Andrew and his girl Becky. They are 4 and a half in squares and the blocks were six rows of three. The blocks joined by the quilt as you go method which makes it easier for me to quilt on the machine, the machine quilting is not perfect but I will keep practising. I used lots of large scrap pieces for the backing of each block. I am really pleased with it but I am glad it is finished. I have so many ideas and so many fabrics to use but I think I am going to do something for me, I have lots of pretty sparkly bits and lots of lace loads of buttons so a pretty wallhanging for my bedroom seems like a good idea..

When you've made each block and, I assume, added the filling and backing, and then quilted each block - how do you sew the blocks together? Does it all go under the foot of your sewing machine using an ordinary foot?

It's lovely by the way - I'm sure they'll be thrilled to have such an heirloom.
