A charity quilt, a baby quilt and a quilt for Doreen

I put spiky flowers all over this quilt which is going to Africa.

I have completed a brushed cotton quilt (which looks a bit odd in this light) for the baby of my dental nurse who was one of my students many years ago.

This is what Doreen gave me last month, it is a UFO from her stash.

I am not sure why she did not fall in love with this and complete it and I think there must be more fabric somewhere but I suspect it may be unfinnished because it is a bit busy. I thought it needed some consistancy in the sashing and stars. I think this picture is a bit dark but the stars stand out nicely. I do hope she likes what I have done for her.

Till next time

I have been busy, just not busy blogging. My friend is raising money to go to Africa with the girl guides so I have been busy helping. She acquired 7 advent calenders panels which I made up and gift bags and shopping bags. Here is just a small sample.

My family think I am bonkers!

Well they may have a point. I have been saving loo rolls, a harmless activity you may think and I do have a good reason. When generous people donate fat quarters and I spend what feels like ages pressing and folding, rolling, arranging and pinning then you end up with a lovely raffle prise that my friend Muriel is admiring.

The show was well attended and everyone enjoyed the quilts, sales table and cake. I showed Master Chaos union jack quilt but faied to get a picture. Doh!

Till next time,
