This is Gandalf the Furry guarding Minas Tirith.

Sorry, just couldn't resist! LOL

Pay-It-Forward


A while ago I joined the Pay-It-Forward challenge on QuiltObsession's blog. Here are the rules:

I must make and send a handmade item to the three people who join my PIF within 365 days;
In turn, the three people who join my PIF must also host their own PIF and ask three people to join and on and on;
There are no set times other than the gift must be made and sent within 365 days of hosting your PIF.

If you're interested in joining in, please tell me in a comment that you would like to join my PIF.

This means I'm looking for 3 people to join my challenge. Anyone care to join me?

Baby Quilt

Here's a picture of a quilt top I've finished for my grandniece. When I had completed it, I thought it was ugly, and so haven't been really quick to pick it up for sandwiching and quilting. But my DSIL, the grandmother, says it's her favourite - so it can't be all that bad.

I don't think the photo does the colours justice. The fabric is from Fabric Freedom.

Laurel Burch

Quilting Obsession mentioned Laurel Burch in her blog a few days ago, and I mentioned that I had made one of the quilts based on her fabric. The quilt is called "Canines and Felines", and I fell in love with it when I first saw the sample in our LQS.

I appliqued the blocks in the centre with variegated thread - one of my favourite quilting notions. Here's what it looks like.

I'll add photos of a couple of other quilt tops shortly.
