Home at last with my Raggedy!

These past two weeks have been mayhem around here without my laptop, but he was delivered safe and sound today!  Woohoo…..now I can show you my goodies!

I DID finish this little beauty brought to you by Kaaren J at The Painted Quilt a couple of weeks ago, just before the ‘crash’!




Some beautiful feather quilting really brings out the quilt’s beauty, don’t you think?




The custom quilting was done by a lady in our Quilting Guild, Annette of Triple One Quilting…it was just perfect and showed Kaaren’s design to a ‘T’!


I pieced the back in real earthy colours…..I just love it and it really shows up the quilting too!


It sat comfortably on the piano stool before the quilt show last weekend…


and now it lives on the back of the lounge….but I haven’t got to take a photo of that yet!!!!….soon, I promise!

I have so much to catch up on….just thought I’d give you a little bit…tomorrow, I’ll let you have a peek at our quilt show….which was held over the weekend and was a great success.

Thanks everyone for keeping in touch and letting me know I wasn’t forgotten, although I felt I was in a faraway country that didn’t have access to the internet!!!

Sugary Hugs always

Hi Wendy, Love, Love the quilt will keep you nice and cuddly on the back of the lounge. I am glad that you are back missed you. Talk soon.

Congrats!! I am so happy that you got it finished... I still have to do mine... I am not even sure what number I am on. I think that I finished up to 9 but not sure... Winter will come and I will get it done.

I just love the colours that you used. I can't wait to show mine off... All Stitchery has to wait till winter thou and that sucks...
