The Life Of A Quilt

Back in the summer I signed up for a 4 week quilt class at my nearest quilting shop Thread Bear. The day I booked the class my friend Franney & I popped along to another quilt shop, that just happen to be having a closing down sale, & I decided there & then to purchase my fabrics for the October class.

I decided to take photos from start to finish. Fabric choice, cutting, piecing etc etc. Here is the start:

My next class is on Monday & thats when we start sewing so hopefully there'll be lots of lovely piecing to show you next week.

I hope to get around to showing you some of my birthday presents this week. I was lucky enough to have the twins looked after for a day last week so that I could attend one of the largest stitching shows in the UK.... The Knitting & Stitching Show at Alexander Palace, London. This falls every year about a week before my birthday so I often get money gifted early so that I can have a spend up. I've just been going through everything I bought at the show as it was all a gift from my DH & as today is my birthday I thought I'd look at it all again :-)

Happy Stitching all :-)


  1. Oooooooh, look at all that loveliness! It looks gorgeous just cut out, i can't wait to see it stitched together :oD

  2. Lovely fabric. Happy Birthday. Can't wait to see what you brought.

  3. I'll look forward to seeing this quilt come alive :o)

    How exciting! I wish we had a show like that around here. Happy Birthday :o)

  4. You do realise you are turning me into a fabric addict too don't you? Like I haven't got enough trouble with yarn!
