No Baking, Tidying, Ironing or Gardening

It is 9pm now I started this at nine this morning after breakfast! All I had to do was sew on the label which read quilt made for Lauren by me (well words to that effect) and cut and make the bias and sew it onto the edge and hand sew around but it took me twelve hours to do all that! I know I had elevenses, lunch and afternoon cuppa and evening meal and my friend Diana came for about an hour for help with her tapestry but it seemed to take forever! I am meeting my friend Denise tomorrow for lunch that is why I wanted to finish it. Here is the one I made for Lauren's sister Hannah. I didn't quilt 299 squares this time, I quilted oblongs of three or five squares.


  1. The quilt looks beautiful! Well done, I've never made a quilt and would love to have a go one day.

    Lucky you living just 10 minutes away from there. You live in a beautiful part of Somerset! On an other occasion I would love to meet up with you, thanks for suggesting it.
    Enjoy your day with Denise tomorrow.

    Warm wishes
