Two finishes

I was really keen to get back to my sewing machine after more than a week away, so got down to using the fabric and windmill template that I had won in Soscrappy's giveaway earlier this year. Once underway I realised that the colours were perfect for a cot quilt, so went ahead with that as a plan. I bought some suitable fabric for the border and backing and Bob's your uncle. Done.

Whilst I was away I, of course, did some hand sewing and yesterday I got it made up into this Huswif Needlecase, a free pattern from The Painted Quilt.

What a fabulous quilt! I like the setting that you used to make it rectangular. The border fabric looks just right and the quilting turned out adorably.

It is a beautiful quilt. The black and white sewing bag is gorgeous. I love the colours.

Oh yes! Very excellent, Amanda! I love them both!

Oops! I meant, I love them all. My brain is getting fried from the heat and humidity, I'm afraid.

Hi Amanda,

You have been doing great this year with all your finished projects. As soon as I finish getting everything put away and organized maybe I'll start doing the same. One can always hope.
