I can't believe how quickly I've pieced this quilt together! From a simple idea to completed top in 6 days (in between looking after our B&B guests!). It was great to do. The random effect works well I think. The only constant is the 1" border around each center piece, oh and of course the finished block size which is 9". I'll show you the finished article later. My daughter is hoping it will be a picnic quilt !!At the moment I'm about halfway through quilting - just loving it. I'm also busy collecting fabric for my next project which will be a lap quilt for my mother. My challenge to start and finish it before Christmas!
 Off tomorrow to Plas Bodegroes near Pwllelli  Take a look at  Will let you know how many pounds I gain! Till we meet again......

Know your onions

So much for a picture of our new chickens (bit of a crisis story there!) or a quilt but as yesterday was such a glorious day we decided to lift the onions. Can't believe how many weve got hanging out to dry! This picture just represents about a quarter of our haul. Not bad for beginners I say!
 As for quilts - yes I have started on another 'quick' quilt which I think will be called' razzamatazz' for obvious reasons -  when you see it!
