I finished a quilt for my friend ... who has her FIRST grandchild ...



a little boy xx AND I made a quilt for a girl I used to work with..




she wanted a longer quilt for use in the car .... and she brought me a fleece to use on the back .. which is fine .. but its WHITE!! can you tell she is a first time mum? lol x glad I wont have to wash it xx

It was Congleton (Beartown) Quilt group on Tuesday .. the group is 30 years ( PEARL )old this year and so a challenge has been issued xx We all have a piece of muslin and a button ...


THINKING CAP ON xx watch this space xx

I was in the latest Quilting Gallery swap ... and I heard from my partner that her mug mats have arrived...




..... in Australia x The next challenge will be up soon x

Last night was Quilt group in Sandbach... remember last month the challenge was hexagons  these are some of the results..









the ladies did SOOO well x (the grey at the front on the first one is a scalf with hexagons sewn onto it xx)

They have a respite this month .. then next month ITS BACK TO CHALLENGES xx

We had Amanda Hall (www.monkeybuttons.com ) to speak to us last night x She was great .. the meeting should finish at 9.30pm .. 9.50pm we were still going xx Remember I told you  I joined a bag swap? I thought I would look for ONE pattern..

What on earth will you do with a piece of muslin and a button!! Looking forward to that one!
You have been a busy bee - it makes you wonder how you had time to work, doesn't it?

the quilts are lovely, the hexies ladies sis a great job, I'm intrigued what you can do with fabric and a button, and I'm exhausted after reading your post!!!!!

Love the quilts Diane and the hexies, but then I am a bit partial to hexies!! Looking forward to seeing what you do with the button and fabric. Love the postcards too!

Love your quilts and all the hexagons. Monkey Button bag patterns are irresistible. Your mug mats are going to be soo enjoyed.

Enjoy Malvern. I am going to give it miss this year owing to a new feline in the family, pity as I do enjoy it there.
