Tilda Applecore Quilt DONE

One quilt from my list done...which was actually supposed to be for Christmas, so I’m running very late!


I bit the bullet and did my first “curvy” binding after a lesson at Cottage On The Hill. Was heaps easier than I thought it was going to be!


Even the new cat, Smudge, likes this one!


So it’s now been gifted and onto the next one.....

Sadness

On a family weekend away, in early June, my husband of 19years passed away in a tragic accident.

It is like someone has taken to my life with a sledge hammer.

Thank goodness for family and friends and their care and support.

Finish-a-long Q2

Hi! Long time no write.
Here's my list for the 2nd quarter. It's interesting, as I've looked back over previous lists, I do actually finish some things...others just linger on!
The quilt I have been working on for my older boy...

And various quilt tops...that have wonky borders, so I need to unpick them and get those suckers flat! Ha ha

Will be back with an update soon...have a great week!

Scrappy boy's eye spy quilt

Just before Christmas, Julie from Jewell's Quilting quilted three tops for me...some that had been waiting to be completed for yonks (an official unit of measure! 😜)

So I got the binding on the Eye Spy Quilt that I made earlier in the year to decrease my scraps. Making it a finish for this Quarters Finish-a-long! Woo hoo!



Helpfully held up by Sunshine Boy who tells me (between whinging) that he's get quite an expert at the gig! 

I was determined to use fabric from my stash for the binding so I picked this two tone blue chevron...and then had to try match stripes...I was quite proud of how I did, actually!


I machined the binding on, which I never seem to do very successfully, but I was in a rush. Think I'll go back to the longer process of hand sewing next time.

Anyway, hope you're having a good week.
