Yesterday I made an early start on this scrap quilt.

I had been mulling over how to quilt it but given the recipient

I thought machine quilting would be the most hardy,

and the quickest.

Had to take a break around lunch time

but by late afternoon it was all done!

The recipient wasn't too sure.....

Normally she carefully steps around quilts when they are laid out on the floor

so it took a while for her to relax.

Wish I had made her a quilt sooner.


I don't know how I did that...

I lost the last post so I will put the photos back again..


Oh, the wonders of technology.

The pattern

I am still working on That quilt

but I thought I would start writing up the pattern

(before I forget the maths)


I am enjoying the drawing.

Any one interested in the pattern?

Should I leave this as it is



change the little pieces at the bottom

to complete the circle?

In one piece

My latest quilt is all one piece.
Still not sure if I like it....
Hmmm, borders?

I do love it when my maths works out, eventually.

Not so sure

I have been working on a new quilt.
That's lot of sewing before I see a result but I'm not so sure about how it is going to look.
I was playing on Instagram later.....
the colours are lot like my freshly dug homegrown spuds.

Time to start something new...

Here's my fabric selection
not counting a rummage through the scraps box.
I am starting with the basic 9-patch.
2 1/2" squares.
You are welcome to join me but it will get more complicated.
I have sewn triangle on all four sides.
6 1/2" x 3 3/4" rectangle cut diagonally to give half a 60 degree triangle.
I am working this out as I go along
from a picture on the Internet.
hope it works.
