believe it or not, but yes, I have finished a few more quilts. Now don't think I work that fast, that's not it. It just happens this way that I finish a whole pile of quilts at once because of the way I stagger the different jobs that need to be done. I had a pile of pieced and finished quilt tops and then had to baste them all (about 10 I think) and then I quilted them all one by one and then did the binding. The reason for that is Jane, my Janome quilting machine, as I work with a different machine when I quilt and do all my piecing and binding on the old machine I need to wait and do all my quilting at once because I don't want to move the machines around so much.
So there you have it, I always have several quilts on the go and then I finish quite a few around the same time.
And here we go, another 3 finishes, hurrah.
I hope you like these. The Tulips quilt is quite different from what I normally make and I am really happy with it. I really enjoyed the quilting too, only focusing on the negative space was great fun.
And the red, yellow, blue Baby Jane quilt was quilted in straight lines and I absolutely love the modern look and feel that gives the quilt.
Oh and not to forget, I still have the Easter SALE on in the shop. There is 15% off everything until after Easter.
Have a lovely egg hunt and hopefully the sun will be out over Easter for a lovely Spring stroll.

we just spent a few days in Bruges for the Monkey's birthday present and it was so lovely, sunny and warm and just a gorgeous spring atmosphere with people cycling wearing spring dresses and sandals.
... and then we just returned today to this drab English muck, fog, cooooold and just depressing. So grateful for my lovely quilts and fabrics that always brighten up my day, no matter how horrible the weather.
So here we go, I have added a few more new quilts to the shop and am still working on a number of other UFOs. It just never ends, I have so many projects on the go and it seems I have to work on them in piles. Several quilts pieced, then I baste and quilt several at once (mainly also because I have to switch machines for that) and then I bind them all in one go. I am currently binding the last one of 4 more quilts which I can hopefully share with you soon.
But here are the last few finishes:
And speaking of horrible cold English weather, to hopefully brighten up this drab time I have decided to have a Spring Easter SALE in the shop where everythign will be 15% off until after Easter.
Lots of love,
