2 Quilts Finished _ Tractor & Chickens

Another 2 quilts finished by "Mum & Me".
Both are for my Quilt & Craft Sale in December.

In between customer's quilts, I managed to quilt & bind the "Girl Feeding the Chickens" quilt Mum sewed together last week.
Then we got together and made this "Tractor" quilt from a kit I bought at the Newcastle Quilt Show.
My "hubby" said..right colour, wrong tractor".  He owns a McCormick tractor.
Wish they made fabric with this image on it!

Until next post...

Feeding the Chickens

Another "Mum and Me" quilt.

This kit was a VERY simple quilt to make.  I bought the kit & gifted it to my sister, as she loves her chooks...she is actually known as "The Chook Lady" in her small town.
Well, she has moved her love of quilting to loving Scrap-booking & Card-making, so she asked me to sell all of her kits & patterns on eBay.

Well, seeing I gave this kit to her, I kept it to make up myself!... well Mum & I to make it up.
I quilted it with a leaf pattern..

My Quilt & Craft Sale is coming up (5th Dec), so Mum & I are busy making those last minite things to go into it.

Yes, this quilt will be in the sale.

Until next post...

Another Quilt Finished

"Flip's Flower Garden"..just complete by Mum & Me..
 This kit was gifted to me by a friend in America. 
 She knows I am a sucker for cute things and bought this for me.
So, as usual, I cut, Mum sewed, and I ironed, quilted & bound it.

I thought it would be a fairly quick quilt to make... but I was wrong!... there were LOTS of sewing, cutting, matching & more sewing to this quilt.

The quilting stitch I used was a "Buzzing Bee" to compliment the bees around Flip and also on some of the border fabric (hard to see).
At the moment, Mum is busy with applique on her September installment of a block of the month and I am quilting customer's quilts, as well as making nighties for my sister, as she asked for me to make her some.

Until next post...
