12 Days - Day 2

Day 2 - what a day!

We successfully negotiated the traffic into town before 10 am!

and ...

mission accomplished , school uniform DONE!

I got my frame sorted back to 10' and got Jean's quilt loaded and almost ready to quilt, as you can see I'm auditioning some threads, but I need daylight for the final decision  :) 

then I had a visitation from my mother, and everything ground to a halt!

However, after she left, the Diva went out on a sleep over (party too) a swift visit to Sainsburys and a nice cup of tea with a very dear friend who is quite poorly and then home for tea and getting back at it!

and back at it I got!

The top is pieced together, I have border decisions to make on this, but as the original oriental fabric is in several pieces of varying sizes, that's going to take more brain power than I had left tonight!

But I think we can safely say this was a success  :)

and whilst I was piecing the Kaleidoscope Quilt, I was piecing more of my 36 patch blocks as leaders and enders. 

Billy Bonus!

So tomorrows project?  Well, I'd really like to get a start on the quilting of jeans quilt,


yes ....   and

I'd like to get the blocks of this project at least finished so they are ready to lay out.  Anything more than that will be another bonus  :)

Anyone recognise this? 

Obstacles for tomorrow?  Yes there are just one or two things that could seriously scupper my plan.  Mothers 70th Birthday, AND sons 18th Birthday! 

That's 2 cakes to bake (Victoria sandwich it is), presents still to wrap, and flowers to buy!

And the sunset ...


  1. Day 1 - Jeans quilt borders
  2. Day 2 - Kaleidoscope quilt pieced
Another successful day!

I'm only jealous I need some of your "get up and go" !!
Your quilts are beautiful, I love the spinning one! I recognise sunkissed fabric I think but not what your going to do with it!

I can understand you getting the quilting done, or getting the other stuff done - but not both. Hope you enjoy today and the birthdays, etc.

Crikey, I'm getting tired just reading what you're getting up to. I'll be in need of a holiday by the end of your 12 days!

Well done, just ten to go! I'm trying to psych myself to stick to one quilt in one day!!!

Okay Trudi, spill the beans, where did you get the gadget you've obviously got that pauses real time and lets you fit all that in to a normal day?!
