Christmas Eve

A week ago I finished quilting this quilt for Sarah to give to her daughter for Christmas. Sarah used leftover pieces to make up her binding. My favourite binding at the moment is a pieced binding and it uses the leftover strips. even quicker if you're using a jelly roll. This was one of the two classes we did with Jan Krentz in 2010. I think most of us have finished this design and only Janet has finished the quilt from the three day class. That is one of my must finish UFOs for 2102.

Loving Cinderberry thread

I love this quilt which was a delight to quilt. The owner, Liz Webb is so precise in her piecing which makes for a better finished product. I have bought this book as a result of seeing Liz's friend Katie's version and I think both are nicer than the example in the book.

Katie chose a parchment coloured thread for her quilt which matched the backing. Liz gave me free rein and I chose Cinderberry (great name) which matched the colours in the border fabric.

Visiting tutor, Lynne Edwards, suggested a book evening for Caesarea Quilters and I think it's a great idea to see the books members have actually used and the quilts they've made. Unfortunately this is a Christmas gift and will be going to England very soon.

Are you busy too?

I've been busy getting over my second chest infection of winter 2011. Three of us are visiting a school in England on Saturday so I want to get rid of it asap. Farmer's Wife Friday is taking a break until the New Year but here is a photo of 36 of my blocks so far.

I will be returning before Christmas to share another customer's beautiful quilt and also one of mine which is being bound this week.
