Welcome

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.

A Couple of Christmas Finishes!

Well its been a crazy month and I have been busy trying to finish projects and other things and have sadly neglected my blogging and I apologise!  I had several items I wanted to give at Christmas and I'm happy to say that I have finished 3 out of 4 and the last one is nearly there - just pulling all those dratted threads through and then a wash and that one will be done too!

The first one 'A Bunch of Aussies' I posted about here but I realised I took the photos before I pulled through all the threads (so glad to be finished I think!) so this photo is a little better.  Its been mailed to Canada and I'm waiting to hear its arrived.

Then I finished a small project for my mother-in-law Betty.  I'm really happy with the way this turned out and I hope she likes it too!

What quilt would be complete without a label?

My other big finish is my Craftsy BOM - Yay! I managed to get stuck into the quilting and got it all done in record time (for me)! Ta da - Sampler for Serena!

Sorry the photo is a bit fuzzy. It was quite windy and nearly impossible to get a still shot!

I tried a new (again for me) all machine stitched binding and I have to say I will definitely be doing that again. So much faster than the traditional method.  Here are some close ups of some of the blocks to show (off) the quilting!




And, of course, the label.  You can see the fancy stitch I used to finish the binding.

I'm really happy with how this one turned out.  Now to finish pulling those threads through and then I can get some photos of my last finish for Christmas!

Thanks for reading my blog,
