You have been busy Jayne. Glad that the postcard is still on display.

Love the flying geese lap quilt Eileen. Well done on finishing both quilts.

Marian, congratulations on the speedy completion of the bird pincushion.

Here is my completed mini QAYG Bargello quilt, started in a Saturday workshop. 28 x 38". I used all fabrics from my stash. Think the tasteful backing must have come from a charity shop.

It is the 4th Bargello that I have made and the most problematic. QAYG didn't really suit this project. My trusty little workshop machine,Janome DXL603, does not have an accurate 1/4" foot and refused to QAYG with quilting thread. I switched to my Pfaff at home. I also had to unpick about half of it when I forgot to turn the chart when moving from left of centre to right of centre. Hey Ho!

Last summer,when I went to see Ricky Tim's...I won a couple of raffle prizes....and this is what I have made with a set of charm squares...I must have mislaid a few... so I have added an extra wide border! Not quite sure where it' s going to end up..... but somebody will enjoy using it! Best Rosemary

Margaret,

love your bargello quilt, well done. Sounds like you needed plenty of patience. The border fabric compliments it beautifully.

today is our 35th wedding anniversary. A month ago hubby Steve asked if I'd make him a quilt to take when he goes sailing. So the challenge was to get it done in time for today. I chose blues , a deep russet red and jade greens as jade is one of the themes for 35yrs. Finished it at 10.30 last night smiley

I chose a fpp of a mariners compass enlarged to 18" square for the centre piece, bordered and stencil with a rope design. to make it double bed size I added to extra 4" borders with keystones and cornerstones to make the fabric 'stretch' to fit.

mariners compass:

He says he likes it and that coming from him means he likes it a lot smiley
