Blue Squares

For my daughter. I tried doing my own version of a colourwash before I really knew what a colourwash was and how it was done. It is just a collection of 4inch squares sewn together. It definitely needs more quilting in the borders. This is one of my first quilts and I had no idea what I was doing really... and nobody told me what I needed to do. I have to do some more quilting on the orange quilt too.. or all the wadding will start migrating south.......

At Last!!

At last my table is done! It took a while from thought to table but it is done!
Lots of people have sewing rooms, I just sew where I have room. I had nowhere big enough to throw a quilt and pin it and the thought of crawling around on the floor putting in a million pins, then having to undo half of them because they were stuck in the carpet, just didn't appeal to me or my knees.
The table is too long and not wide enough, but it does the job and I have now got 3 of my UFOs under control - one is almost finished, just got the last little bit of binding to do. We are lucky that there is a rather large veranda out the back because the table is too big to fit in the house!!
