WELCOME: Just a bit of nonsense really from a paper crafter and quilter who loves to dabble in all sorts of crafts. It will give me a way of remembering my craft projects - and sharing them with others

Last Saturday was a manic day- I had it in my mind to finish the quilt I had started for Mike before we went out to his 60th birthday party at 4pm, Needless to say I didnt get it done and ended up having to get up early on Sunday to finish it and drop it round to him the next day. The green and cream blocks were made for a quilt-as-you-go bow tie project and I added it them further blocks made from wine patterned materials I had sent over from Keepsake Quilting in the USA. Not entirely happy with the finished result. I should have used the same colour for the border as the backing fleece. I realised after I had delivered it that it could have done with some large stitch quilting in the cream squares.

This is one time when last-minute Linda didnt pull it out of the bag but having a deadline made me get on with the project.


  1. Very nice quilt I'm sure Mike will treasure it. The finish is fine and I like the green border.

  2. Uhooi,,
