Quilting update ...

Great day for being outside after a few days of this summer's mixed weather thats fine for inside jobs.

Pleased to have finished Sue's beautifully patched star quilt ... once again. I've learnt from doing this, mostly that I'm not that fond of long and wide quilt tops!

Anyway, it looks fine and will make a great winter warmer on one of our guest beds.

and I've started to work with denim ... tough fabric, so I made simple blocks, some with lovley embroidery from old jeans etc.

This quilt has border and back material bought in a yard sale for next to nothing - and I'm glad to have used it up as stripes are very unforgiving to work with.

and of course, Cookie thinks I made it for her to lie on ... bless.
