A finish !

I actually completed this a couple of weeks back but am just now getting round to showing you. It has appearred on my blog in various stages of completion but is now D.O.N.E - hurray.





First of all I quilted in the ditch with invisible thread but decided I wanted to add some hand-quilting. If you click these pictures you can see some detail. Please remember some of this quilting was done when I was flat on my back with this slipped disc so be gentle with me - lol !




I think I will put a hanging sleeve on this and find a spot for it somewhere - not sure where yet.


For anyone interested it is called Log Cabin Sampler by Bareroots. It measures 34 by 38inches.



I have quite a bit of stuff to show and will try to catch up over the next few days. I have been very unsettled and done lots of bits and pieces here and there - you will see what I mean soon :-)


I only have a few minutes here so will quickly show a little bag I made for Floss as a little giveaway thing from a while back.






And here is a lovely little surprise I received from Karol-Ann for guessing how many 4-patches she made before attending a workshop with Bonnie Hunter ( lucky girl ).






Now that's the sort of post I like to receive - great fun ! Of course the very delicious bar of chocolate is long gone . . .


One last thing - I received an email a while back from Pameladownunder who I would love to answer but unfortunately is no-reply. If you are reading this Pamela perhaps you could email me again with your email addy so I can answer you.


Next post will be a proper mish-mash I assure you - need to take some photos.
See you soon xx

I love the little quilt, you do such nice work, even flat on your back in pain! Aren't you lucky, winning such a lovely prize.

Your quilt is sweet, nice finish.

Congrats on the finish. It is just adorable!! And I agree with you on the mail thing too...prizes are much more fun to receive than some of the other things that come in the mail ;cD Enjoy your winnings, and hope your weekend is a great one!!

HI! I just found you by doing a Google Search for QAYG tutorials! Yours was really good and I am going to try it tomorrow on my quilt.

Chris H said...

PHEW! I just spent the last 2 hours browsing through your blog... ALL OF IT!
I am in awe of your sewing skills and how much you get done!
I have only been sewing for about 3 years... and have done very little compared to you!
I will be back to see what you are doing often!
