Going green.....

Having made a great lap quilt yesterday for  my friends birthday, I felt a pressing need to repeat the deed and make another, in more Westminster fabrics! A green selection happened to be the in the stash from an Etsy purchase a few months ago, so here is the completed top. I need to find a suitable backng for this little baby!

Full reveal on the gift made yesterday now that the binding is on

My first attempt at proper binding worked out well- I have conquered that fear now! 
Back to the knitting .......



  1. Love the green and pink colour combo and your binding looks fab! Wish I could sew :)

  2. Lovely quilt - I recognise the backing- I bought some at Ikea to make cushions! I really like the green fabrics - I bought a jelly roll of Westminster fabrics last year at a show but none of those lovely greens in it. Ah well, impulse buys, never do me any favours!

  3. I love the greens too - am having a green moment myself with the pottery colours. Am catching up since getting back and have just seen your beach hut and am now GREEN with envy!! xCathy

  4. What a lovely quilt. Reminds me of my great grandmothers quilting. Glad I stumbled across your blog.

    1. Thank you ,and welcome to my blog- isnt it amazing what you can stumble across when browsing? I cannot believe you have produced a book! I will be following you with interest, I want to come to Kentucky some time for the quilt festival at Paducah! I have been to West Virgina quite a few times to visit friends, and love bluegrass music!
