Some quilty finishes…

In my last post I hinted that I had finished four quilts over the Christmas break and well I have! Sadly though I FORGOT to get photos of it finished what is wrong with me??? So I’m sorry in advance as some are clearly in-progress shots.

My favourite finish is this Disney Cars Chevron Quilt for my two year old nephew Oliver. He did receive the knight/dragon quilt for his birthday in August but he loves it so much he can’t be without it for a day hence the need for another… Isn’t it great when someone truly loves your work?

All were quilted with the only quilting I seem to know how to do.. that of the wonky straight line. I have a feeling my walking foot is now shot and it was very last minute finishes quilting with the standard..

Linking up (yay I rememberd) to the FAL Q4 finishes party as these were on my starting list!



Playmat Fun!

You might have seen recently the little snippets I was doing towards a playmat quilt for my nephew who turned two last tuesday.

Well I finished it! Lots of new things in it for me and even though not perfect and fabric choices debatable I love it and he did too! His little face when he opened it up then promptly threw himself on it.

*Warning* picture heavy…

I’m quite chuffed with the reverse too! Makes it reversible and educational. I even had time to whip up a Postman Pat cushion/pillow his favourite thing ever! Overall a success 🙂
