Whirlygig


This quilt top was made in January 2009 using 2 charm square packs and some extra fabrics in one of my all-time favourite ranges - Fig Tree's Patisserie. The quilt top has stayed in the "to be quilted" pile until a few days ago when I put it on the frame and finally got around to quilting it.

Whirlygig - 62-1/2" x 69-3/4" (158 x 177 cms)
Our weekend plans changed a bit due to the amount of rain we received, so Sunday night was spent sewing down the binding - brick red background rose fabric from the Patisserie range. The backing is mostly a green floral/stripe fabric from Fig Tree's Mill House Inn range with a pieced corner of a variety of Fig Tree fabrics.


As we had Sunday afternoon at home I pin basted The Pirate Quilt


ready for lots of ditch-stitching.


Jenni and I had a lovely trip to Ikea on Saturday - didn't buy too much that wasn't on the shopping list - and dinner out with the family last night at a Lebanese restaurant was very enjoyable - no belly dancer this time.
