Quilts in progress

I am having a nice gentle week with hand quilting and some machine quilting. I have almost finished the quilt for Mazzy whose mummy writes the lovely Mommyshorts blog. I have loved making this quilt and will be sad to see it go. But go it must! This week. And my dear friend Leo had […]

New fabric

I got a lovely box today… Full on dots, stripes, stars, ginghams and plains… All the way from Holland. It looked so delicious I just wanted to dive right in!

What I have been quilting

Check out the wonderful LR stitched blog for more details. There were some errors in the book but luckily […]
