Cat said I could go ahead & blog about her quilt that she just received back from me. I did the quilting for her, plus some of the centre block, which was part of Helen Stubbings 'Stitchin' Round the Block'. There were four of us in the group, Cat, myself, Kerry & Kerryn . Cat is the only one to make a quilt, the rest of us made cushions, to see mine click here. So fun to see this 'round robin' finished. Cat was also involved in a block swap, these have been stitched around the centre block, to create a fun quilt.
Knowing Cat loves the modern/ Tilda- ish look I did a few smooth fancy moves!

Can you see the backing fabric? Cat gave me a vintage flannel sheet for the backing & I used cotton batting, Madeira, Gunold & Mettler threads. I'm sure I had a sheet just like that when I was a kid?
|the backing.....roll on the 70's!!|
My 1 xmas item finished......well two of them, but I won't win any " wow Leeanne you have done so much for your 1 xmas item " will I ? These are pretty quick & easy to do!!
I'm sure the other SAL girls are putting way more effort in then me!
Pop over to Narelle's for a peek at what everyone else's efforts are like.
I have another quilt finished ( you might have seen it in my Puddling post ) but I will have to wait a couple of weeks as the owner is away.
It is a bleak, wet, wintery day here in Whangarei, I have put a big bacon hock in the crockpot for the day, then I will make a big pot of warming winter vegetable soup.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by, enjoy your weekend, I will leave you with the following sentence I found.....................
"Happiness is a thing you have to find for yourself, but dog hair ( in my case cat hair!) is something that finds you."
