A finish and ….

Hope you all had a great Easter! Last Thursday/Friday I came down with a sore throat which progressed into sniffles and now I have a horrible chesty coough…. yep! I have been suffering with a cold over the weekend and looks like I will be home sick this week.  Such a great Easter weekend for me, lol.

Well I got one quilt done & have 2 to go!  Last Thursday I finished the binding on Autumn Waterfall, though I kind of mucked up joining the two ends.

I used Kona Chocolate for the binding, which frames the top beautifully. I borrowed the washing line at my parents’ to take this picture as I don’t have the space at the flat to lay it out.

I am now working on quilting Diamonds in the Sky, which is not exactly a doddle as the patches are 4cm squares and half the blocks are different colours.

Blogaversary Giveaway and other stuff

Just a quick post as I have 2 announcements to make:


I have a 1-year Blogaversary coming up at the end of April and I have planned a giveaway. I have ordered 2 FQ bundles via Etsy, as my LQS did not have anything I liked.

So make a note in your diaries for April 29.

Interview mini-series

This was inspired by both Diamonds in the Sky and Maple Leaf which are large quilts.  I have asked 6 fellow bloggers if they wanted to be interviewed about their ‘monster’ quilts – quilts which are 90 x 90 inches & larger. So I have sent my ‘victims’  a short list of 4 ‘questions’ and now wait for their replies.
