A few quilty things to share…

Hello

Back again. I thought I would share a couple of quilts I have been working on.

Hubby’s secretary is going to be a grandma for the first time so I have been making a couple of quilts.

First

This

????????????????????????????????????????????

became this

I cut the pre washed fabrics into 3.5″ squares and alternated the bright squares with the elephant print. It is backed with yellow homespun and finished with a grey stripe binding. I quilted rows only. The finished size is 91cm x 99cm.

And this

This is a work in progress. I am using this to make a disappearing nine patch quilt.

I have cut the fabrics into 5.5″ squares. I have sewn the squares into nine patches ready for me to cut into quarters, turn and re stitch.

For both these quilts I am using my trusty treadle sewing machine to do the sewing. Love the nice even stitch this machine gives me.

Hopefully I will be back again soon.

I have some new paper crafting goodies so I hope to play with them.

Thanks for stopping

Cheers

Vicki
