A finished quilt and a ticket
I can finally show off a quilt that I made a wee while back.
It's in the current edition of Creative Quilting, which is a special edition and was being launched at the Festival of Quilts last week. you can buy it in WH Smiths or order it online here
The quilt is made using a jelly roll and I will be teaching how to make this quilt at the Stitch Gathering in Edinburgh later this month.
The magazine is packed with really beautiful projects including a stunning quilt by the lovely Jo, who is the Mastermind behind the Stitch Gathering, as well as some other really gorgeous projects. The photography is really lovely!
Speaking of the Stitch Gathering, I have made my ticket :)
Jo had the brilliant idea to produce a fabric ticket that can be personalised by each attendee, and turned into a quilt! How clever is that?!?
Our schools went back today so I am finally managing to get stuff done, and am hoping that more time means more blogging :)
Here is how my little lovelies looked this morning

Adorable little lovelies, how they are growing! Clever ticket idea and the Stitch Gathering projects look inspiring.ReplyDelete
lovely quilt! I can't believe how early school starts up there (although I guess you break up that much earlier too!)ReplyDelete
OOooooo wow huge congratulations on getting published! Gorgeous quilt, I love Sweetwater loads.ReplyDelete
Finally I can see the benefit of school breaking up earlier in Scotland ... you get to ship them off again earlier! They all look very happy in their uniform :)
Love what you have done to your ticket - can't wait to see all these tickets made up into one big super duper quilt! I wish I could go to the Stitch Gathering ... looks like it will be a blast.
Great quilt - I love it. Hope the children have had a good day at school! Mine go back next Wednesday. JuliexReplyDelete
