England, Snow and Sewing


While England is in the grip of the snow, schools are closed, roads remain ungritted and everything comes to a stop, I have been working on my quilts and have three of them ready to hand sew the bindings down.
The black and red one is quilted with a fleece backing as a little snuggly quilt.
The light quilt is single size [quilted by me] and will be one of a pair of two for our holiday home. The darker quilt was long arm quilted and I have attached the binding ready to hand sew it down. I will attach full size photo's when they are finished, but I like to save hand sewing for quilt meetings.

I am a member of BQL also just been browsing through your blog. You have some beautiful pieces of work.
What I really want to know - how do you get the variation in colouring on the Turkey/Chicken. Always puzzled me the way it,s done.

Hi Diana
I've just finished a Mexican Star too and I'm not sure how to quilt it. How did you do yours?

Another hat

Another hat, hot off the needles! The pattern was free on Ravelry and designed by Anne Mizoguchi. I used double knit special by Stylecraft...
