Woolly Wednesday a day late......!!

We are having the most beautiful weather here today and really it is hard to believe after the cool spell we have had; so I left the house and all it's untidiness and headed out for the day with my sister. That's part of the reason why this post is a little late, but we have to catch the sun here when we get it, for you never know when it will return.

Firstly thanks to your interest in my last post-enough to leave a comment, which were all appreciated. A special thanks goes out to Patty who kindly pointed out the upside down star point and the funny thing is, I hadn't even noticed such a visible mistake, so thanks Patty.
O yes, thanks too to Tammy who suggested sheep in the grass as I wasn't quite taken with the prim cat/dog in the original.

Two more blocks completed.








Ok, this is as far as I have got-all the blocks sewn together-click to get a clearer pic



The problem is-I thought I was so near finished but just look at those borders......nearly as much work as I have already done, never mind the huge bit that I find challenging.....quilting!!!



A friend told me, the only way to make a quilt is one stage at a time, so my next stage is the borders and I'm trying not to think of the quilting (another years work??)

Have a great week,

Shazy x

  1. I love the quilt rack/blanket crane in your banner. Do you know where I could find one? Love your new quilt.

  2. Oh Shazy, it's really gorgeous - you must be really pleased with it. I love your choice of colours too. Keep going with the borders - you'll get there eventually. Quilts do take forever don't they? I'm only half way through one I started about 18 months ago!!

    Love Julia xx

  4. Shazy,
    Your quilt is spectacular! I wish I sewed better. It's funny, I get all agitated, even with a machine...but I love seeing what you talented seamstresses are coming up with! Just beautiful! You'll figure out the stages as they come...all part of the fun of the craft.

  11. Dear blog friends,
    I am trying to put together a bloggers board.
    This board would contain the name of the blog, the first name of the author ( last name, if you allow ) and birthday-- month and day only.
    Once I get this put together, I will email to all participants.
    If you know of others who would like to be listed, please give them my email address so I can add them.
    I just think it would be handy to know when our friends birthdays are so we can send them our best wishes.
    Those of you who have not yet sent me your address, please do. These will not be part of the blog board, but for my own personal address book. I like to send cards now and then.
