Wow Eileen you are some productive lady. Put me to shame. Great pieces, they should sell very well and at a good price too I hope.

Thank you Sylvia. I have to keep busy and when I cant get in the garden sewing is my preferred activity. My other half spends a lot of his time in his workshop/garage.

Thanks Claire. I really enjoyed making it. Its the first quilt that is just using one design, my previous quilts have all been made up of different block designs.

Teddy Bears QuiltJust to show that I have been doing something! This is a little quilt I have made which will be given to a child in hospital in Palma this Christmas.

Our Cosi Patch group here collect kids quilts made by members and then take then along to the children's ward mid December.

It has a lot of quilting as it will, I am sure, be washed a lot. I hope the parents will enjoy talking to their child about the Teddy chefs.

I have a friend who has a school in Gambia and for many years she has brought home fabrics from the local markets etc. She always gave me and my daughters some for summer dresses and tops. Recently she asked if I would make a quilt for one of her friends daughter Zaina. Her father is Gambian so it made sense to use the fabrics from her heritage to make her a quilt. I have been on with it for about a month and with sashing and a non Gambian batik I finished it today.

I joined each row of blocks and quilted the designs with 2 or 3 rows of outline quilting. The rows were joined QAYG and then the borders added. I loved combining the layers this way. so much easier to quilt a single row than a single bed sized quilt. The different blocks were chosen by my friend and they are in my Gambian fabric photo gallery.

I used the embroidery function on my macjine to do a full label for the quilt. I also made a bag for the quilt and put her name on that too. I know her mum and dad will cherish it and hopefully Zaina [2 yrs old] will in years to come.

I am really pleased with it.
