over halfway through the year, unbelievable really. And what is more unbelievable is the weather we are having.. one day very sunny, then a cold snap, then more sun..... and NO SNOW! The local ski-fields are looking rather bare and patchy, and could do with a few good snow dumps. Our season ski passes have been used once, although we are planning on a day skiing tomorrow. Win some loose some I guess, and truth be told, I am really really looking forward to nice warm weather.
So a few finishes this month, a few Christmas pressies to tuck away for a few more months.
I managed to put this quilt together in less then a week, on a cold Friday I sat in front of the fire and pieced, then quilted, and finally the bindings went on Thursday night. This is quite a big quilt, and used a jelly roll that I have had in the stash for sometime - result of bad roads in Canada a few years ago forcing us to stop at a quilt shop!
and binding attached to this also, and it is now gracing a spare bedroom wall,
and this small wall quilt done and dusted - much prettier in real life honest!
.....and I have finished my June Block (#6)  for Imperial Blooms,
I am now lurking by the mailbox waiting patiently (NOT) for # 7. I am so loving these blocks, have I told you that, they are fabulous to work with and such fun!
I thought I had another finish, but it must be a figment of my imagination, which at times is rather vivid,
I will leave you with that thought, and go grab a much needed coffee,
Enjoy your Sunday!

just for you Miss D!!

I even took it down and hung it on the trailer outside so you could get a good piccie... enjoy your cruise!
p.s. I took this quilt outside yesterday to get a photo in good light, forgot about it and it stayed out overnight - it is now frozen solid!!! I Need to leave it in the sun today to thaw out...OOOPS!

OK I'll burst your bubble - that figment of your imagination is 'age' sweety, but it sounds better so I might hav to start using it myself. Love the jelly roll quilt, you have been busy ; ))

GORGEOUS quilt!!! I'll keep that in mind if I get another jelly roll, I love it. I love your small quilts too, especially the blue one, that is stunning! The block for Imperial Blooms is wonderful too - your blog is full of eye candy today, girl!

I recognise the jelly roll fabric! I bought them in charm squares, was going to make it for us (it is rather sweet) but I think it has to be made up for someone else now :-( Perhaps I can make it in such a way that I still get my quilt from at least one pack of charm squares!

Nothing is better on cold days than getting to sew. Especially by the fireside. We are still in the hot hot summer and I will be welcoming a change of weather when it finally arrives. Good looking stitching you have there. :0
