Quilt with cat

Here's another little finished piece, with a cat embroidery in the centre - this piece is for Amy S, made by Meredith.

Blue and white star

Here's Andrea's finished quilt - another beauty. I would covet this one if I weren't lucky enough to have another mini quilt made by Andrea already (actually, I still wouldn't mind having this one, if it came down to it!)


That's the title given to this absolutely exquisite little mini made by Margaret for Emma in Australia. (The quilt having been safely received I can now say who it was destined for.) Emma has put loads of detail photos on her blog, so do go check it out.

Kangaroo's Paw

This quilt (photo taken on a phone, so I'm sure it's even more beautiful in person) was made by Margaret in Australia for her partner - another lovely quilt! Margaret has no blog, which is a shame, as I'm sure we'd all love to see more of her work...


Another super quilt - this one from Lisa R - she says she'll be mailing it in a week or so as she wants to show it to some friends in person first - I can see why!

Fantasy in Lime Green and Purple

Another finished quilt - this one I am particularly thrilled to see finished because I made it - one more thing off my list, yippee! This will be going out to my partner tomorrow or Thursday...

Another lovely finish

This quilt was made by Elizabeth for her partner - another great quilt.

Outback Silhouette

I want this one :) Once again, I'm saying that a lot. You guys are so lucky - what great quilts we are getting!

This one was created by Emma for her partner.

Little geese flying to a new home

Here's a lovely little quilt made by Lorraine for her partner - great fabrics, aren't they!

Little cat quilt

Here's another little quilt - I spied this one lurking on Julie's blog and nicked the picture to post over here. I like cats ok, though I'm not a fanatic, but I'd happily give this one some wall space (not that I have a lot of wall space going spare, mind you...)

Little squares...

Here's another finished quilt - yes, I've been busy, but also they are coming in thick and fast now. Lots of finished quilts to show. This one was made by Tracy for her partner - almost typed the name on this one, but won't as it's not been received yet!

Herfst in onze straat

That's "Autumn in our Street" - Margeeth's quilt for Gina - another beautiful autumnal effort. Keep 'em coming, ladies and gents!

Wonky Pineapple Blues

That's the official title given this piece by the maker, Lisa Jo. It's a great little quilt - yet another one I'd be happy to own myself. Soon it will be on its way to its new home - lucky new owner!

Butterfly Garden

Here's the lovely little quilt that Karen made for Lynda - more photos on Lynda's blog - Karen doesn't have one, unfortunately. Do go check out the closeups on Lynda's blog...

Japanese Bees

That's the title of this little quilt which Liliane has produced for her partner - another truly lovely work. I have some of the fabric she has used as a border print - makes me want to dig it out and use it for something!

Butterflies and Flowers

Here's another lovely finished quilt - this beauty is on it's way to... well, come on, I'm not gonna tell you that! This quilt was made by Gina - isn't it great?

Autumn in Lithuania

Here's another lovely finished piece - this one made by Jovita for her partner. I feel like I keep repeating myself, but I'd certainly be happy to own this piece!

Lots of you have been making progress with your quilts - thanks to those who have sent photos or dropped me a note to keep me up to date. I have had a gobsmackingly busy September, and October looks busy too, so forgive me if I don't get back to you quite as quickly as I normally would. If you have a moment, do have a quick look around our member blogs - there are some lovely quilts being made. And I'll have a few more to show here before long - there's at least one email waiting on that topic!

A general reminder that you have only a month to finish your quilt and mail it out - mailing deadlin is 10 November. That used to seem like a long way away, but it's getting scarily close, isn't it. Yes, I'm among those who haven't started. But it's getting closer to the top of my list.

Here's another finished mini - this one is by Linda, who has written more about it on her blog. This one's pretty amazing, isn't it! I do envy ____, to whom the quilt will shortly be on the way.

Fab squares

Here's another lovely little quilt - this is Amy's quilt for Mary, which has been not only sent but received my its new owner. I really must start working on my quilt!

Feathered fancy...

Here's a lovely quilt made by Pippa - with a superb feather in the centre. Wonder who this will be on the way too? (Ok, I admit, I know!)

Sunday 5 October 2008


Here are some lovely pinwheels, made by Alicia, for her partner. Great colour combo, isn't it?

Mailing reminder

Just a wee reminder that as it is now October, those of you who are finished with your quilts may begin to mail them to your partners, if you like. If you do, please let me know that you have done so. You may, of course, wait until closer to the deadline - it's up to you.

I have a few more quilts to show, will post them in the next few days, as it's late and I should at least make a pretence of going to bed!
