A newly finished quilt

I started making this quilt at least 2 years ago I reckon, it has sat at the shop as a top all this time. People have admired it, touched it and patted it. It was getting a bit knocked around so last week I quilted it and got it FINISHED. Hooray. It now hangs in the shop on display. We have kits for sale as well. This quilt is called My favourite things by Kerry Gillespie.

This is my favourite block, sorry its a little blurry.



I also like this one to.





Speaking of getting things finished I have been working on getting my "From the heart" stitchery blocks by Natalie Bird into a quilt top, I have changed the layout slightly,







Still 3 blocks to get sewn. I am using Bliss fabric which is so pretty.


I am on holidays now for a few days which I am really looking foreward to, its term break for the boys so I have a few things planned with them, including going to the movies on Wednesday.
When I'm not busy with the boys you will find me keeping my sewing machine company and whipping up a few more projects. Here's hoping anyway.

Have a great week.
