My Instagram friend, Amy, wanted to make this quilt and asked me to make one too but, being me, I decided to change the design a bit. So happy with how it's turned out - the original pattern has a plain background block between each sampler spool and I decided to make the quilt larger by adding more sampler spools and a three-fabric-spool between each sampler spool. I'm not a big fan of lots of plain space.
Love the Baptist Fan quilting (Quilting on the Coast) - another lovely texture and the design doesn't overwhelm the patchwork.
Saturday morning Gulliver and I went out for breakfast,
then hit the shops, bought a few Christmas presents, waved to Santa and he generally had a good time singing very loudly and chatting to anyone who wanted talk to him. Finished the morning off with a couple of turns on his favourite ride.
He wasn't happy when it was time to leave but soon changed when he saw that his Daddy was home.
Mum had a lovely birthday yesterday - most of the family was there to celebrate with her and we saw the rest at my nephew's engagement party late in the afternoon. Thankyou to everyone who sent birthday wishes. Mum's up with the times - has her own Facebook page - I show her what's on it every now and then :)
One little piece of Christmas sewing has been completed - a heart for the Hugs N Kisses swag that hangs in the loungeroom.
Kurt has been around for long enough now. I've also ordered a little nameplate from Nikki Tervo for the stocking swag.
