Today I ordered a job lot of wadding off of E-Bay. And boy do I need it!!!! I have quite a few patchwork pieces that need finishing along with cushions too!!!! I had wanted to take up quilting for years and finally got around to it because Madison and Shaun bought me this for Christmas!!!!!
Tubs and tubs of fabric samples, I was soooo chuffed and started straight awayx These are the patchworks that I have completed to date....a stripy blue one for my sea-side guest room
a more modern one....
a beautiful muted rose one, a throw for my front room.....
another throw for my other sofa....
and the throw I have already shown you for my bed I am waiting with bated breath for the delivery man to knock on the door with my wadding so I can get started!!! I have never quilted before and as I sewed all the patchwork pieces by hand I intend to quilt it all by hand too.......wish me luck!!! I have alot of hard work ahead of me!!!!
till next time x x
