Small Quilts

The binding has been added to a couple of small quilts and these quilts will be going to their new homes later this week. 

The Zig-Zag quilt was made from left-over Fireworks fabrics.  Lovely bright, fresh colours.

Backing, binding and quilting by Karen.

The X-block quilt had been cut out for a couple of years and it's good to have this one finished.  My friend, Diann, gave me the ruler and book as a birthday present and I've made quite a few quilts using this ruler.  There is a great variety of designs that can be made.

The binding on this quilt was added using a method/tutorial from Linda at Flourishing Palms - a great way to use two different fabrics to finish off a quilt.

Last week a friend sent me a link on Facebook to some very cute crocheted characters - had to buy the book/kit.

Made a lot of mess in the sewing room cutting strips and squares for a very scrappy quilt I hope to start in a little while.  It's going to take a long time to make this quilt - over 1,000 2-1/2" 4 patches.  Lots of chain piecing.

Four more Orange Swoon blocks to add to the stack - halfway now.  So many different shades of orange.


Had some great company this weekend - friends came for lunch on Saturday and Sunday and I also spent some time with another old friend.

Hello Lynda,

I am in love with the little quilts, the second one is so different to anything I have seen.
The crochet book looks like it will be a lot of fun to make up the characters. Good luck joining up those squares.

happy days.
