Celebrate!! YD has finished her first quilt!
She raided my Christmas stash and came up with this design. YD hasn't done a lot of sewing - a bit of dressmaking at school and the odd outfit for her pets but that's about it, so I was as proud as punch of her efforts here. (Although she has hand sewn at least 6 teddy bears).
|Cross hatched the 3 layers together, and added the pockets afterwards.|
|Love what how she did the borders and corner stones. Plus the binding fabric |
is perfect. See, she even fussy cut that cream border so the writing was the correct way!
Isn't it lovely? Well done Laura!!

I got some stitching done while sitting with him too - it was actually nice to have an excuse to sit and stitch during the day - usually I only do it at night. This is what I've been working on lately - I don't think I have shown it before. Each year my local and favourite Quilt Shop (and home away from home!) runs a mystery stitchery BOM programme. This year's one was very popular and all the places sold out so I have to do my own version in my own fabrics.
|These are narrow strips, I kept them in one piece to make stitching easier.|
|As you can see it is a seasonal theme - only a few more months to go.|
I haven't yet decided what other fabrics I will put with it, probably some reds (me being me) and I will pick out more colours from that gorgeous Cottage Gardens variegated thread I am using.
SO I've managed to fit some creative time in lately :-), hope you can all too,
Have a lovely day,
