Pick Four - Revisited

Back in August I took part in a Blog hop for this book



for my friend Sue of Quilt Times

You can read my original post Here

Finally I sewed the binding down of this quilt last night, and today, whilst we had a little window of opportunity - sunshine, I dragged the hungry one outside ...


but sadly not for long, he took himself off to town to do Christmas shopping, but I got to stay home and play ... more of that in a bit ...


not my best quilting when taken in isolation like this, 


but overall, not bad imho


This is about 80" x 80" ish
(I haven't measure it exactly)


I know you like to see the back!  This one is just for YOU!

Despite the problems I had with my machine whilst quilting this one, I was pleased to finally get it done.

Especially as it was completely from stash, including the 5.5 meters of backing fabric!

Sweet!
Edited note:  I'm linking this up with Clover and Violets Stash Project here:




So, back to today, and I got to play! 


just a little :)  I'll tell you more about this in the new year! 

I did get my ORB Quilt Along Dresden pillow made today ...


sorry about the awful pic, it was dark by the time I finished it, but I was in too much of a hurry to show you :) 

This one is now going in the Christmas box to be given as a gift ...
aaah, now that feels better!

Happy Quilting!
