Sunday Sundries

This week I completed another set of Fraternal Twins quilts. Do you remember the Memory quilt I made some time ago? Wendy made two more cot quilts for future Grandchildren. They are simple but sweet.

After being tempted for some time I fell for the charms of Pandora. Who could resist the Valentine special bracelet with the heart shaped lock?

The Pave ball in the middles was part of the package. I had to add a bit more didn’t I? So on went the two pink beads plus the pave heart clips. No, that wasn’t enough,on I went to add Leo king of the jungle and a chicken charm. Oh dear. What next? I think I am totally charmed!
There is a hint of Autumn in the air. Our Hydrangeas are changing colour rapidly.

Sweet Peas……

gathered at our house yesterday.

Lots of chatter and yummy food as usual.

The girls have been busy. The last time we gathered I shared with them how to make the an enhanced version of the 10 Minute Table Runner called  “The Last Minute Table Runner. Three runners….

Debbie the Queen of the Treasure box has been sharing her knowledge with Trish who has made this very sharp box. The pin is just there until buttons are added.

Before Christmas I shared this a picture of a wall hanging:

Sweet Pea Margaret who loves all things featuring cats was inspired to make her own interpretation of this:

Those eyes are perfect don’t you think?

A combined effort.

This is Andreena’s Row x Row quilt. Andreena set out to quilt this but decided to ask me to complete it.

Fraternal twins

Kaye sent me two quilts made using the same pattern but very different fabrics.

I wanted to quilt them completely differently.I felt that the Yellow/Grey twin was asking for a slightly more traditional look – although some corrugated iron stitching snuck in there.

Now for the bright cat twin
This quilt called out for some funky variegated thread and a more modern approach.

Same pattern two very different looks.
My friend Clare of Lotsmooredesigns has a nice giveaway. Pop over and have a look.
Bye for now

Isn’t this the sweetest quilt?

Doreen has made this for a soon to arrive Great Grandson. My instruction was to quilt a soft all over, but who could resist adding adding a little something extra in those triangles?


BTW that solid blue is linen – are very nice modern quilting touch.

Doreen also bought matching fabric to make a cot bumpes. I quilted that with 1” straight lines.
