Bed runner

What a great idea for a gift. I quilted a bedrunner this week. Doesn't take as much time as a quilt, but still a thoughtful personal gift. This one is in creams and will have a matching cushion. This one is a beginners quilt by Karen in lovely Tilda Fabrics. We have had some very cold weather this week. Really need a quilt on the bed for extra warmth. One afternoon about 4.00pm when I was walking the dog this week there was still frost on the ground that had not melted all day. The next afternoon the patch had grown and was even larger. Needless to say I was well rugged up in my beanie scarf and gloves.

Good day for sewing

After a cold night (spent at a BBQ outside) I was at Picture Patchwork today taking a class . The girl made chenille cushions and did a fantastic job of them. They all looked great and will be even better once thay have been washed to fluff them up a bit.
I also did some quilting on the frame this weekend. This one is for Selina. A very graphic piece of fabric. Quilted with a Lorien Quilting pantograph called Dazzle.
A very satisfying weekend.
