WHEN IT WAS MY BIRTHDAY..

...I received some money as a present, SO, I decided it was to be spent on a special item ..not just mixed in with the everyday money x I bought myself this book..

After some deliberation I decided to have a go at this quilt..

It mostly uses 2.5 inch strips .. so ends of jelly rolls are ideal... and I wanted a scrappy Christmas quilt .. so red and cream it is xx All the fabrics for this one are to come from my stash.. which is getting out of hand AND NEEDS TO BE TAMED!! lol x


The blocks came to-gether soooooooooo easily ,it was a pleasure to make them


WELL you know what its like .. I was going to make a small lap quilt for Adam and Caroline xx It would fit a single bed the way I was going!..


I have added the sashing and now I MUST STOP!..


The backing piece I was going to use is now too small .. off to search the stash for a bigger piece.. I know there is some in there ... somewhere x

Keep smiling

A lovely quilt. You could always piece the backing if you can't find one piece big enough.
