Finish Up Friday.

Yes indeed, I have two finishes this week. You might remember the little quilt top I had made a few posts back in " Day spent unpicking". I thought the left hand side looked a little odd. One of the suggestions from my friend Liz was to cut the side off leaving a boarder on both sides. Bit drastic I thought, but I did not fancy making a border strip up of all different little bits. So I duly cut one lot of blocks off, all down the side. The strip of cut off blocks was then pieced into the backing fabric,(I could not waste them) and the quilt was sandwiched with wadding/batting and machine quilted with all over wiggly woo/ meander stippling and bound. It is 56" x 40", so will make a very nice baby quilt. Very pleased as this was all the left over scraps from my Humming bird quilt, so I got two quilts from this scrumptious fabric.

This is the other finished project for the week. Another friend Liz from my knitting group held at Mains Restaurant in Yoxford gave me this pattern, which can be found on Ravelry. The wool is from Meadow Yarns and was just yummy to knit with. It was to be a Christmas pressie but I liked it so much I am going to keep it, sorry Ruth will have to knit you another one.

It was Wednesday Club this week, which as you know is held at Quilters Haven, some of the girls were doing the jelly roll race with Karin, This was Alison's at the end of the day. It was a lovely William Morris jelly roll and she is now going to appliqué  some William Morris designs on top of it. I will hopefully capture the finished quilt.

Just had to put this picture in as it's an almost finish for Liz. We all have made this Mariners compass block, but none of us have finished it or done anything with it, well done to her. I think it's to be a cushion.

Lot's of rain here so the garden will have to look after itself. I am hopefully going to do lots of sewing...

Keep safe and keep stitching...Doti...
