I've been creating,,,

A challenge was set back in May, by a member of my quilt group, to make a quillow. Easy enough,, got the fabrics, got the idea, but no oomph to make it. And as the deadline for this is the first week of December I thought I'd better start. I kept to the KISS principle,,, Keep It Simple, Stupid!!

 Made from 6 fat quarters and a panel for the cushion cover. Plus some fleece for the back. It's for my Grandson,, once I have been to the quilt group show and tell. I was thinking of doing triangles, but I liked the fabric too much to cut it any more than I did.
DH and I popped into Dorchester the other day and visited the Dorchester Curio Centre,, antiques and things. I saw this lovely Jones sewing machine,,,, I was very tempted to buy it. Only £25!!!
Here's a closer view,,,
It was in a lovely condition,,,,

Once again,, not much creating,, but I did make Patch for a friend.

I just love that fabric.
I went to the Malvern quilt show last Sunday. The weather was awful,,, but I had fun at the show. I was very good and bought what was needed,, but I did have one impulse buy,,,
lovely stuff! Nothing in mind for what it will be used for!!
I have recently made a little more progress on my hexie quilt. I have been working on it for nearly four years,, but I only normally work on it when I go to my quilt group, which is twice a month.
It looks very creased doesn't it? I will want to quilt it by hand, once it is finished. I am having thoughts on how to do that at the moment. I reckon it will be a small single or lap size when it is done.

 This book was 99p from a charity shop,,,, it needed a new home!!
