Sunday snaps....

A bit if this and a bit of that....

Wanted to make some small mats using Kaffe scraps, improvised quilt as you go method.I dont want to give them away now! I can see a production line this afternoon!

Ths is my first attempt at Hand quilting!!!! I am quite happy with it and actually enjoyed it! I am not using a frame, I couldnt get on with it. And I am sure my technique is way off the planet but I dont care! End result is as required! This is my Mama said Sew street quilt, pattern from the Moda Bake Shop. 

I have 2 lap quilts from recylcled pajamas waiting to be bound, they are looking good. Pictures later. 
Good luck with the Christmas preparations folks

Bits and pieces....

Ongoing work at the moment seems to be a bit of this and a bit of that.....

I decided to put some selvages together from my Japanese Echino fabrics- and a few other odd selvages that I had...

This resulted in a few key ring fobs from a pattern I purchased a little while ago from Leila at where the Orchids grow. I couldn't punch the holes as my cheap puncher wouldnt go thro the fabric so I took them to the local cobler who did it for free! Just need to put some eyelets in now. 

I then had an urge to do an improvised quilt top using up old cotton an flannel pajamas and shirts that I gathered from charity shops ages ago.
Here is the top , waiting for backing and a little bit of quilting. 

I really like it- I was going to give it as a gift but I think I may haveto keep it!!
