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,,,,


  1. Your grandson is a very lucky boy, the quillow is gorgeous Caz! That Jones machine also looks fantastic, very decorative and a bargain at £25. I wonder if it still works?

  2. Thanks Cath. Don't know why it took me so long to make the quillow.

  3. Goodness, it didn't take you long to whip the quillow up!
    It's lovely and I'm sure Jordan is going to love it.
    You should have bought the sewing machine! It is so beautiful and a real bargain.

  4. hello Caz, thanks for your comment about the carnival.
    I enjoyed looking round your blog and seeing your crafts, looks like you are another hexy girl like me :-D

  5. Lovely patchwork .
    Best to just admire old sewing machines unless you have plenty of space to display
