'Snorkelling the waves'; a cot sized quilt.


I did promise proper 'presenting' post when the quilt was washed and dried, and so it is!
Before washing was 92.5 x 136cm (36.5" x 53.5") Generous cot size. After the dryer--the crinkles--J'adore!!--is now 88 X 130cm (34.75" x 51") I seem to be losing 5/6cm, or roughly 2", which I guess is about right. :-)

~having time to quilt.
The schnibble quilting is proceeding, only, I have used up all the pale aqua silk thread and will need to order another. Unable to finish the inner border, I started on the blocks. I quilted 3 columns of holly leaves and am doing straight line quilting in the other 3 columns. It takes time, though, and my shoulder aches. I think the table I set Nina on is too high. :-(

... is working on too many things at once. More of that another day.

Yesterday, I made a pair of reversible lamp mats as a cheer-up gift.


Both are 'flower fairy' fabrics. The apple blossom is last year's range, and the sweet pea has been hoarded these many years. Layered with a scrap of Thermore batt, the blossom were outline quilted with 100g silk threads, top and bobbin. Simple but useful and cheery, no?
