Finished Fish Quilt

Coursework has been taking second place this last fortnight because I decided to finish one of the fishy quilts (see earlier entry here) and give it as a christmas present (the recipient doesn't know yet but it's OK, she isn't a blog reader). As always, it took longer than I had allowed but here is the finished article using just the blocks on turquoise backgrounds and just simple quilting. Eventually, I will make up the purple version and that one is MINE - sorry to shout but I keep making lap quilts and giving them away, so I am the only one left with cold knees. And I also have the left over blocks that will turn into cushion covers at some point so the disaster has been recovered. Just a couple more things to finish before Christmas then it is back to what I am supposed to be doing.

Finished Book Tower

Just remembered I meant to add these pictures as well - the completed vessel/book from Maggie Grey's online class (see earlier post here ).

First attempts at ATCs

I keep seeming to run out of time when I get on the computer in the evenings, so just a very quick post today. I wanted to send a thank you note to a stitchy friend so I decided to try making some ATCs - something I have wanted to do for a while as I love the concept. Here are my first efforts.
