An Old Quilt..
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum...

My busy week...

This last week has flown by, I picked my youngest son (14yo) and my parents up from the airport on Wednesday, it was so good to see their smiling faces, they had been visiting family and friends in the UK for the last 5 weeks and I have missed the dreadfully.
Off_to_the_quiltersDuring their absence I have been frantically drawing and stitching, I enlisted the help of one of my wonderful stitching ladies and today I am putting the finishing touches to my new quilt "Your Home Or Mine", the theme is houses of course! As we completed each block it was definately 'the favourite', now they are all done I love them all and 'the favourite' is the one I am looking at that moment! I know you will all love it too. The 12 different blocks of this quilt besides being really cute combine applique, stitchery and english paper piecing they will be available two ways for purchace, either individually as I think they would look great framed, you could make a series of cushions with your favourite ones, maybe you will want to make only four as a smaller wallhanging? Or,"Your Home Or Mine" will also be available as a BOM (block/pattern of the month) with the final pattern containing instructions for a joining block/borders etc.
I am just making a couple of the blocks up in a blue colourway which I think is going to be gorgeous as I wanted to give you all an idea of how it could look in an alternative colourway. These patterns should be in your favourite quilt store by mid-end of November.
Well I am off to the post office so that the wonderful lady who is going to do the quilting for me can get creative with the quilting.
bye for now
