WIP - Home to Roost designed by Jeanette Osborn

...and because I don't have enough to do - lol - please note the sarcasm there. I have another project.

It all started with a friend and I going to a local quilting show in Hamilton and I saw the below pattern and thought ooooh that would be nice for my daughter who loves owls.


A nice little project and a bit of fun to do.

...

but when my daughter saw that, she goes oooooooh that would be nice as a quilt :D

So yes, I am going to be making this into a single bed size quilt. Fun!
with these gorgeous fabrics
So, while I've been unwell, I've been tracing and cutting out 8 little fat owls for the quilt. No hand sewing for the appliqué on this one, I will be using the trusty sewing machine or she won't get it for ages.

WIP - An Angel's Story - designed by Anni Downs - up-date

It has been a while since I up-dated. I have managed to get quite a bit done since the last up-date.

Here is one of the smaller blocks
First of all the panels had to be sewn into four different blocks. The panels are separated by 2 inch squares
This is all the blocks sewn together. Sorry about quality of the photo

Now I have to put another row of squares around the whole quilt, then a border. This then should be big enough for our bed.


When the weather clears up a bit here, I will try and take a better photo of the quilt.
