Matilda was VERY excited yesterday to receive her first two letters in the mail. Thankyou to Dylina and Julie. I had to re read the notes to her several times as did Dad and her two sisters…. And thanks for the stickers, our house is now all stuck!
I finished the last stitch in the Mystery Quilt binding at 11.33pm last night so won’t be long and you too will all be finished.
Vickie has made some progress up to date with her first border – she says she is going to make another – go girl!
Its always so gratifying and exciting when people send me photos of their work using my designs… you always wonder how many actually get finished and how many end up in UFO boxes or filed as to do one day patterns?
But Verna this week sent me some photos and wrote this
‘Finished at last! It has taken me 12 weeks to do and I have enjoyed the challenge.I had quite a break between the top and the quilting, I just couldn't find the backing I wanted.I finally found this piece at Spotlight.I hope you like the photos I'm sending you, I'm proud of the finished job .’
And proud you should be Verna, this is a big quilt and a lot of stitching. 12 weeks is amazing and you should be proud of such a wonderful result.
This was my first Block of the month design ‘Fairy Kisses’ and there are still people stitching it the world over, I know my sister has just received the third quilt from ONE lady for quilting – now that is dedication – one for each grand daughter.
beautiful neat stitching
and she used my label included also, so often I don’t get around to finishing the label even though I tell all my stitchers to…
I’d love to see any photos of other Fairy Kisses quilts – please email if you have finished or even just your progress thus far…
hugs for today and happy stitching
