Wonders Will Never Cease


My goodness, I’ve surprised myself this time – I’m actually blogging with a couple of finishes and it isn’t even the end of the month!  Wonders will never cease.

Firstly, following our last ‘Strippers Club’ day there were a number of scrap leftovers from the Black/White & Lime quilt.  They sat there in the basket staring at me and daring me to throw them out.  After trying to hide them a number of times I still couldn’t bring myself to throw them out, so, without bothering to match points or ‘nest’ seams, I stitched most of the bits together and, taa daa


…another quilt, this one is for DD number 2.  Although the colours are way out of my comfort zone – I’m a country girl – the lime is really starting to grow on me.

Earlier this week I had a customer bring me in a  picture of a cushion she would like me to make for her.  Always up for a bit of a challenge I told her that I would and to give me a few days.

This one needed to be done in black/white and red.  (There must be a bit of a black and white trend going on at he moment).

Anyway, the cushion design was a Cathedral Windows variation and I did it in a variety of B&W fabrics with a vivid red  and around the outside edge I piped in just plain black. So, here it is:


I so hope my customer is as happy as I am with it.

Now onto a few more finishes and hopefully they will get done and reported on long before the next OPAM totals are due.

Have a great weekend everyone

  1. It's amazing what we achieve when we step out of our comfort zone. I think your daughter will love her modern quilt, and your customer will be very happy with her cushion. Great work.

  2. You've done great!Isn't the lime fabric fun!

  3. Well done on TWO finishes so early in the month! Love your Cathedral Window style cushion - very effective!


Thankyou so much for popping by and leaving a comment. I enjoy reading your thoughts and ideas and will get back to you if needed, hugs - Miche'le
