Big heart quilt

There hasn't been much time for quilting lately, but it's amazing what you can accomplish, when you have a deadline! Ha ha

My Gorgeous Girl turned 18 last month, so I quickly threw together this quilt for her. Went together easily, and pretty well, and I was happy with how it turned out (even if I did have to machine on the binding at the last minute!...Something I don't do well.)


Hard to believe I've been parenting for 18 years!....

Equilateral triangles in Blue


Finished for my teenage boy and his king single bed. He’s 14 and now 6” , and likes to affectionately pat my head as he walks past as to say “Hello,Shorty”. Cheeky kid!

Tilda Applecore Quilt DONE

One quilt from my list done...which was actually supposed to be for Christmas, so I’m running very late!


I bit the bullet and did my first “curvy” binding after a lesson at Cottage On The Hill. Was heaps easier than I thought it was going to be!


Even the new cat, Smudge, likes this one!


So it’s now been gifted and onto the next one.....

The first finish on my Q1 2018 Finish-a-long list

Sadness

On a family weekend away, in early June, my husband of 19years passed away in a tragic accident.

It is like someone has taken to my life with a sledge hammer.

Thank goodness for family and friends and their care and support.
