The other day my friend Deb called. She had been working on a lap quilt, and wondered if I would have the time to quilt it for her. She's really nervous about machine quilting. 'Sure Deb, bring it to netball on Friday night, and I'll do it on the weekend' I told her.
This is her quilt, how cute it is! It's not very big, I don't think it'd be even 50 inches, so it'll be a breeze to do it for her. She's even pieced the back with matching squares, just lovely. She's asked for just a simple meander, but I may suprise her with something a little more interesting. Deb is such a honey, I used to go to primary school with her younger sister, and now our daughter's play netball together. Funny what a small world it is.
But first, I'm just going to finish blanket stitch outlining the applique on the holly table runner for Cam's day care lady. I'll either finish the holly piece I'm working on, or continue until the bobbin runs out, whichever comes first.
This pattern is from the Christmas gift workshop I participated in recently, which was run by a wonderful teacher Susan Murphy. She does such lovely work and is a very knowledgeable and generous teacher.
I'll share a picture when more is done. I'm super pleased with how it's going at the moment. I may actually make another couple when I'm done, I'll need one of course :-) and I haven't decided yet what I'm going to make for Amy's school teacher ... school finishes for the year in 3 weeks ... I better get moving!
