A LONG TIME COMING….

KING SIZE QUILT KING SIZE QUILT

Well it is finally finished and on the bed!  I have named it my ‘Two Colour Nine Patch Quilt’.

I have worked on this quilt for a couple of years or more, doing a few blocks at a time. There are thirty different nine patch blocks in it, finished with a piano key border. It took hours of time and much hard work, but was very rewarding when finally finished. I hope you like it!

Amongst many other things I have also sewn these purses for my daughter’s birthday; they are great to hide other presents in. I love making purses and am teaching how to sew them at the Patchwork and Quilting Pals group next month.

Advent calendars have been made for my two gorgeous grandsons.   I spent time beading the pictures at the top for Farris. Here are the beaded Christmas trees.

Of course I couldn’t leave out Santa’s sleigh! It was  fun adding the bells.

Joseph’s advent calendar has the beautiful traditional Christmas story pictures on it. I have finished it off with two star buttons at the top. There is lots of gold on this calendar, so it didn’t lend itself to beading.

Both advent calendars are waiting their poles to hang them from. The workshop has started them, but is rather slow this year!

Happy days!
