YOU HAVE ENOUGH QUILTS WHEN YOUR SOUL IS FILLED,
YOUR CREATIVITY SATISFIED
AND YOUR FINGERS JUST WON'T WORK ANYMORE

Good Girl / Bad Girl

Well this week I have been very good and very bad. The good part was I got two QS quilts posted off to Victoria.

The first was a quilt I made about 10 years ago but hadn't got around to finishing. My friend Sharon (no blog) quilted it for me last weekend and I finished the binding this week.


The second is a floral I made last week. I'm rather fond of floral quilts and they are so quick to make and always look lovely.

And a close up of the quilting. It's a panto called Camellias by Timeless Quilting Designs.


So this is great for my Stashbusting......until..........................................

A friend and I went touring today and somehow 60 mt / yards found their way back to my house! Now I know it sounds a lot but it really, really isn't. I can justify every last inch of it.....all but 3 mt / yards is for backing for more bushfire quilts. It takes 7.5 mt / yards of backing for a queen size quilt. So even when I'm being a bad girl I'm being very good!

And the 3 mt /yards? Well it was a lovely stripey oriental which will make up very quickly in a strip style quilt for my step son.

No bad girl there at all. Just good. Think of all the comfort you are spreading around you.

The two you showed today are lovely.
