Whichever Way You Look At It

Yes, I'm praising my own work . Whichever way I look at this quilt I really like it , I'm pleased . If you cannot say that about your own work then hide it away .

I bought a book when I went to the Malvern show earlier in the year . The book is called Floral Quilts from Grandma's cupboard .  A Leisure Arts  book .  I paid £17 for it . When we came home bluebell looked on the internet and got it for £6 NEW!!! . grrrrrr,

The book has 8 quilts in and I shall make them all . I like doing applique .


The birds will have plenty of cover in my garden this year , everything is pretty lush with all the rain we had .

I'm now off to have my lunch . Jacket potato with chilli .  Hopefully I will be sewing this afternoon if Pinterest doesn't capture my attention . I have fabric cutting to do as well . I did intend to pop to the town for knitting yarn but a neighbour called so that didn't happen . I seem to have open house , there is always someone dropping in . I never turn anyone away saying sorry I'm going out .

Love your quilt. I believe i have seen that book in the library here in town. Me thinks it needs to be borrowed for a closer look.
Nice garden too, mine is looking better now we have had a couple of decent rains during the past week or two.

I love that quilt too and all the others on your blog I have just started to sew quilts and have the bug!
I love bright colours and have the fabric to start one in Moda Terrain, a Jelly roll with some extra fabric to have good size squares with the smaller ones from the jelly roll. Can't wait to get started!
Happy quilting!
