The stockings are double sided.

More pictures of them in the making can be seen here.

Riches to Rags

I'm off to Furness Shoreline Quilters Guild this evening to give a talk - Riches to Rags. This talk covers the first part of my exciting quilting journey. I will be taking along lots of quilts for the audience to have a good rummage through after I've finished. The bags are packed with quilts all I have to do now is figure how long it will take me to get there!

And now for a little eye candy:
This is Frosty a double bed sized Stack n Whack quilt I finished in June.

The Quilted Sheep

The reason for my prolonged absence is due to our new venture - The Quilted Sheep.
My daughter and I have taken the plunge and opened a quilt fabric and wool shop in Milnthorpe, Cumbria.
Hence we have had a very exciting but busy year planning, organising, buying etc.
As the quilter I am looking after the quilting side of the business whilst Charlotte takes care of the knitting.
So there will likely be even less posted on this blog!

I've been in my scrap box again and for once I've finished what I started! When I get my act together this will be shipped to Jan MacFadyen in Australia for the Oz Comfort Quilts - Queensland Flood Relief Quilts.

I used Jan instructions for making it Quilt As You Go, though I joined the blocks differently by using one strip of fabric on the front and another on the back.
