One down, three to go

My sewing machine has been busy this week stitching one of the quilts that my late mam had made a start on.


I wasn't sure what my mam had planned for the back of the quilt so rang my sister to see if she had any ideas.

'Just use what ever fabric you think goes', she suggested, 'that was what mam was going to do'.

Looking through the stash of fabric I inherited from my mam I found some pink butterfly print, which although there wasn't enough to cover the back completely, there was enough for five large squares. I teamed that up with some cream and used what was left of the main fabric to make some binding.


So, one quilt down, only another three to go !!!!

Have a great week.

  2. The back suits the front very well. Whoever gets it to put on their bed will be nice and cosy.

  14. Gertie, I've just read the comment you left on my blog and I want to let you know that you made me smile, the thought of Mr Spider up to no good made me chuckle.
    As for your blanket, I think it's lovely, I love the backing you chose, it makes it a double sided quilt. :)
