A finished quilt, only sort of mine

Way way back last summer, the participants in the 2016 New Quilt Bloggers Blog hop also participated in a charity block drive sponsored by Cloud 9 Fabrics. You can click that link to see my original tutorial.

The hosts of last year’s hop each put together a quilt and one of them is finished! Yvonne from QuiltingJetgirl… do you know Yvonne? She is really nice and a wonderful cheerleader for the online quilting community… she recently completed a quilt with the blocks she had. Click here to see her write up about the quilt.


My block is circled in the dark blue.

Thanks to my fellow contributors and especially to Yvonne!

A new quilt, and a new look

I’ve tweaked things around. If you read this via bloglovin’ or feedly things will look pretty much the same (I think). If you follow via email or through wordpress you’ll probably notice the differences.

If anyone notices hiccups or weirdness (technical terms you know!) please be kind and give me a shout. In the mean time, I had a very fast start and finish today.

B’s best friend’s birthday party is tomorrow and so gifts needed to be acquired. The best friend is a bit twee and absolutely enamoured of her Maplelea doll. We found a “campfire” accessory set and thought to include a picnic blanket.



The best friend also plays softball. While it is a whole cloth quilt, it does have three layers and is quilted. Ta-done!

For baby Caelyn Amelia, daughter of husband’s ex-co-worker, and now just friend.




B suggested adding something in the centre here. The orange thread is the same colour as the binding.
