Show and tell Monday

Today I have two finishes to share. First up is my "red red wine" quilt. This quilt was inspired by a pattern I found in Primitive Quilts magazine.  I have tweaked it a bit but have basically kept to the same colour scheme.  It measures 66" x 66" so lays nicely across the top of my bed.  I used a variety of fabrics that I have collected, these depict - my favourite wines!!! Blacks for Pinot Noir, pinks for rose and dark red for a rich claret. The yellow is of course a lovely buttery Chablis!!!!

Unfortunately it's been raining ever since I finished this quilt so it had to be photographed in doors and the result is not great and doesn't really do the colours justice. As soon as the sun comes out I'll re photograph it.

Next up is a bag made using a Lynette Anderson pattern from her book "Country Cottage Quilting". This has taken some time to finish as I lost momentum with the embroidery element but here it finally is!!

It's great to have some finishes to show, please feel free to link up and show what you've been doing and don't forget to leave a comment. 

Love Mondays !!! Jacky O


  1. Love your red wine quilt - really great colour combinations and the sashings really work well with the reds. Very nice indeed :)

  2. This article narrates the main idea of the field very well. Highly recommended
