Last week I went to Finishing School at Steph's
Right next to our table was this gorgeous quilt designed by Sarah Fielke
There was a workshop on this recently but I didn't get to go
I took along my Gardener's Journal quilt top and the plan was to get advice from Jan (our teacher) on how to start to make a pieced top
Lots of ideas but I didn't quite know how to get it together
Jan said to measure the quilt......then I squared off some fabric to 38" x 38"
Then make up fabric 10 1/2" wide to fit each side
And this is how far I got.....YAY
Whilst at Steph's I was admiring this quilt 'Just Can't Cut It'
Truth is I've been admiring it all year
And because I was feeling sad about our little Paris who was killed the day before I just had to have this quilt to snuggle up with and remember her by
And to think this quilt waited all year for me ha ha!!!!!
I bought the 'special fabric' that you can photocopy a photo onto and then I will put it on the back of the quilt with a pic of Paris on it
And the best part......we have had quite a cool snap here and this *Paris* quilt keeps my knee warm which is still a little inflammed and sore
Check out this cute little skirt hanging in the window......just gorgeous
I wouldn't mind one myself
Life's been full on here since May rehearsing every weekend for Pirates of Penzance and then once or twice a week
Then 17 shows over 3 weeks
I'm running way behind in catching up here and in stitching but aim to fix that soon
Thank you everyone for visting and leaving your lovely comments......I appreciate it so much xo
There's a wrap-up party for Pirates coming up tonight and it's also our wedding anniversary as well......so 2 celebrations today!!!!!!!!
Happy Weekend......Dzintra xo
