Welcome to my blog about my quilting journey! I started quilting in 2006 with a quilt of my own design which started as a cushion cover and ended up as a single bed sized quilt! Now I'm totally hooked....maybe obsessed is a better word for it.

Craftsy Quilt Top Finished!

Woohoo! Got to be a record for me, I finished the last two blocks on the Sunday and had the quilt top sashed and put together by Wednesday. Now it will sit there quietly until I finish quilting my Red, Black and White quilt (I really have to come up with a better name for that quilt - any suggestions?).

What, oh you want to see a photo? Oh, okay here it is:

I know, its a terrible photo but I had an unenthusiastic victim volunteer, and it was blowing a gale! That meant he had to stand under the pergola to get out of the wind but that meant the light was a funny colour coming through the roof. Still you get the general idea!

This one's a little clearer at least and has a lovely set of feet showing too!

Anyhoo, this will be a gift for my husband's granddaughter (those are his feet by the way) for Christmas so hence my need to finish sooner rather than wait until the tutorials were finished. I'll still be lucky if I get this quilted by Christmas but fingers crossed. I'm nearly there with the Black, Red & White one and that's only taken me a month or so, which is supersonic speed for me! I do have two weeks off in November but as my trusty other half will be off too you just know I'm not going to get as much done as I'd like to!

Ok one more snap for good measure, you'll notice his technique was getting a bit sloppy by this time - no staying power, he'd be a terrible quilter!

Hope to share another Christmas project soon, I have the label handstitched and just need to hand sew the binding and clip threads. This one's going to Canada but I have missed the sea mail cut off so looks like I'm paying the big bucks to send that one to get there before Christmas! I dread to think what that will cost!

Thanks for stopping by,
