All but One

The past 10 days of therapy stitching while hanging out with Mum and helping her get things organised has seen me complete all but one of the tags. The one not completed is not traced clearly enough to even see which one it is.

I am about to start on a second version which is for a friend's birthday at the end of January.

Top Done....

My quilt top is all done now... thanks so much for highlighting this gorgeous quilt and motivating me to get it done....

I had a fat quarter bundle of Tilda fabrics in my stash so it was a perfect opportunity to break into them... I just love the final top....

It has now moved to my stash of unquilted quilt tops!

Lovely seeing all the different colours and fabrics being used....

All Stitcheries Completed... Woo Hoo!

What a wonderful milestone... & I know I would not be at this stage of the project, had I not joined in with all you lovely ladies in this SAL.
I've finished all 35 of the stitcheries for Ruth's Quilt... & I'll blow my own horn & declare myself to be Super Chuffed!!
This is my final four... it felt quite exciting to stitch the year of 2018... as the girls at Patchwork joked "Well girl, you're committed now!" ... Being that it was the second last one I stitched, yes indeed I am committed♥
I genuinely LOVE this project.
 My self-set challenge with this project was to only join in if I could use fabrics I already owned, NO buying allowed; that challenge applied to the stitchery fabric too.
Well, I had no problem doing that, & in fact I returned some fabrics to their tub, because I had so many... I did of course buy thread, being that I had only one partially used skein on hand.

This is the fabric selection, which I hope will go together ok:
This pic was taken in a well-lit room, so they're shown brighter than they really are.

Thank you Helen & everyone here for the fun of this SAL so far... I really do look forward to the next stage of making this quilt... it won't be quick progress, due to other goings-on for me, but I do very much look forward to cutting & placing these fabrics!

Bye For Now ♥

March Tags Tick

A good thing I made a quick start at the beginning of March as things slowed down in my craft room. One day late ... finished the last tag yesterday.

I've been enjoying a catch up of posts ... looks like many lovely quilts nearing completion. Well done, I better keep plodding on.
