WOYWW 204

Good morning and happy Wednesday from sunny Cornwall! We’re here for a week’s holiday, and unusually, I only have a little scrapping with me as I’m busy doing the hand quilting bit of Leo’s quilt … so that’s what I have to show you today.patchwork

I am rather proud of it as it’s my first ever quilt! Marilyn and I have been to classes at The Eternal Maker in Chichester and I think we are pretty much hooked :o) Just one more class and the binding to do and it’s finished.

I was quite amused at the class that all the other ladies had chosen pretty autumnal chintzy fabrics … mine did stand out a little LOL.

OK I’m off to Julia’s blog to join in the linky party. Hope to see you there.

The quilt is beautiful. I really admire anyone who actually finishes a quilt. I started one years ago, but it's still sitting in a box somewhere waiting to be finished.
