Patchwork Progress

My knitting may be growing a little slowly at the moment, but my patchwork is going well. My floral patchwork quilt is now quilted…


I’ve sewn on the binding…


… and even hand sewn a quarter of it down…



I’ve also finished all the pinwheel’s on the baby quilt and added a boarder made from scraps of left over jungle fabric…

Pinwheel baby quilt

It was tight. This was all I had left when I finished…



Hopefully I’ll have completed the floral quilt by next week.

Hope your projects are coming together well.

Until next time,

  1. The quilting looks really good on your floral quilt – it looks all cosy and snuggly now.
    The jungle quilt now reminds me of the circus tents that were here a couple of weeks ago. They had tents in just that red and gold and, unfortunately, wild animals too which made me angry. One of my friends went up to the ticket desk and asked if they had animals performing and, when they said ‘yes’, she said ‘oh that’s a shame, because my grandchildren said they didn’t want to come if you do’. You’ve got to love the Brits although, to be fair, some of the French were demonstrating against the use of animals too. I mean, a hippopotamus for God’s sake!
    However, I digress, and your pinwheels look brilliant!

    1. Oh dear, I’m sorry to hear about the animals – countries like France have no excuse for allowing that.
      Glad you like the pinwheels. Definitely feels tent-like to me, but I’m thinking fairs and parties and and circuses without animals, despite the elephants and zebras in close proximity. Anything marquee-like also makes me think of cream teas πŸ™‚
      The floral quilt is definitely snuggly – which is brilliant since the weather has got colder again, so I can sit under it in the evening while I’m sewing it πŸ™‚


  2. The pink quilt is lovely! It’s amazing what all the stitching does to the fabric isn’t it – and I love that you included those freestyle hearts a real signature for a labour of love! The pinwheels have rather taken over the animal fabric in the other, but it is for a child and bright colours are the order of the day there……. Can’t wait to see that finished! πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you. You’re right, it’s incredible watching how the fabric changes at each stage of the process and how the look even changed each time I moved out to a new border as I quilted. I was regretting doing so much stippling when I finished the last round of freestyle hearts, but once I added the final border of stippling it all came good πŸ™‚
      So pleased you like the hearts. I was never tempted to farm the quilting out – as others do – because I always wanted to do it myself. Now it’s finished, I’m very glad I did.
      Fortunately the pinwheels don’t take over as much in real life – the camera is definitely pulling them out more. Of course that will also change as I add the batting and then quilt – so will be interesting to see how that goes. Decisions to make about quilting soon. Think I’ll might have to garner some opinions once I’ve added the final two boarders.
