I'm back and guess what I've finished?!

I realise that the title for this particular blog might be Stephen King's Shining-esque but it's how I feel at the moment. I'm so glad to be back in the world of technology! I've trying to catch up with everything I've missed but first things first - Kermet and Miss Piggy broke up?! Say it isn't so!

The detox is actually continuing for another two weeks but at least I'm now allowed to use technology again. Let's hope the migraines start to behave now.

Any way, back to quilt news. On the days when I was able to do something practical I got on with the  double pinwheel king-sized quilt and guess what? Yep, the top is pieced, the binding is made and the back is pressed. Short of pre winding the bobbins, I'm ready for basting! I (and probably you) never though this moment would arrive.

I'm not a fan of basting (is anyone?) but I have my semi-willing assistant poised and ready to assist so hopefully it shouldn't take too long.

I would show you a picture of the top but, hand on heart, I actually don't have anywhere big enough to lay it all out fully. I've renamed it "Big Momma" in honour of its size. It's 102" by 120" so it's going to be a squeeze to even bast it in halves on our conservatory floor. If we manage it I'll try and take pics.

In the meantime here's a reminder of what a quarter of it looks like. Please excuse the feet.

And here's it all scrunched up as I finished sewing the last 6" border on.

Two finishes in eight months isn't bad right? Oh dear.


  1. Oh, I do like your quilt! Crisp and clean looking, if that makes any sense. Well done!

  2. That makes perfect sense! Thanks Sue!
