The Cross and The Crown

Welcome πŸ™‚

I hope you’ve been well while I’ve been away from the computer.

You may recall my little Blog Hop a week or so ago where I managed to over stretch myself and ended up not quite finishing my Blog Hop quilt.

I’ve been busy doing 10 minutes here and 10 minutes there quilting away and without realising it I’ve finished all the hand quilting – so with apologies to those of you who saw it first time round, here is my little lap quilt all completed.

The red quilting stitches really finishes it off and adds that little bit extra.

All that’s left to do is to decide what to write on my quilt label (a block I cut too small during construction!) and then sew it onto the back.

Any ideas?

(UPDATE –Β This quilt seems to have captured people’s imaginations over on Pinterest so for those who want to know, this quilt is based on a freebie pattern. The link to the pattern is on this blog post here. Happy making!

Oh and if after having a look around my blog you like what you see why not come and join me at my new blog The Mulberry Mouse just here πŸ™‚ )

Last night I went to my monthly quilt group and learnt how to do Somerset patchwork. I thoroughly enjoyed the sewing and chatting that went on. The lady who taught us went to a lot of trouble in preparing the tutorial, even making up a board for us to refer to as we stitched so a big thank you to her.

I came away with a partially completed project – as ever!

However today I managed to finish it off and here it is,

It just needs to be made into something now – watch this space πŸ˜‰

What have you been up to lately?

Until next time,
