Hello Wonderful People, how are you all today?? Happy and peaceful I hope? There’s a bit of a break from all the CAL catch up today, although there will be more along very soon. I have been meaning to show you this for a while. Its very special. I need to sing the praises of someone who doesn’t have a blog and won’t sing them herself.
For her birthday last year I got Grandma Patch (my Mum) an Amy Butler jelly roll – Soul Blossoms, I think and this book. I have bought her similar presents in the past and she has made herself a couple of quilts. She has also made quilts for my brother and sister.
When she visited at Christmas she brought the completed quilt made from the jelly roll and book I had bought her… and told me I could keep it 😀
Would you like to see it???
Ok here you are –
Tricky to get a good picture of it (especially as my bedroom was a bit untidy and not ready for its moment of fame!). When there is a lovely sunny day I might try to get a photo of it on the washing line. I think its quite springy looking, fresh and clean and floral.
This one shows the colours a bit better. You can’t really see but in the corner nearest is an appliqué flower design. I think this is her fifth quilt and she has done an amazing job. I LOVE it. Is she clever or what??
Thanks Mum xxx
Now I have a loooonnngggg overdue date with my sewing machine today as the boys are off to a football match. I will get to that scruffy little room and find things on my workbench as I left them last time and probably won’t quite remember what I was going to do with them because its been so long! They will turn into something, I am determined. Enjoy your Saturday.
