Show and tell Monday

Well it's been a couple of Mondays since I was last here and I'm sorry about that but I hate blogging without pictures. But at last some finishes to show. 

First up is a train case from Sharon. Now before I reveal Sharon's work of the past weekend she has added a disclaimer  -- she lost concentration and then was hassled to leave the peace and tranquility of the sewing room.............

Yes it appears to be a bit off centre !!!

So not to be defeated Sharon perfected Mark 2......


And to emphasise the difference....... 

The of moral of this story is - a quilter needs space, peace and the opportunity to mess up from time to time!!!!

Sam has been on annual leave and has taken advantage of the time to complete not one but two quilts!!  (And some additions to her wardrobe but I didn't photograph those!!)

Sam is our patient English Paper Piecer and has made this lovely Charlston lap quilt

And a lovely quilt using the Scrumptious range which she has called "Opal Fruits" 

I also managed a finish to share ...... A cushion which I will gift to a male friend and happy to share as he's not likely to be reading my blog!!!!!

I will be signing off now until the new year.   
Hope you all have a splendid Christmas and a wonderfully creative new year.  I'll be checking in then with all my works in progress, finishes and projects that will never see the light of day cos I got side tracked!!!!!!!

Happy Christmas. Jacky O 


  1. Just a little off centre Jacky, lol ( Oh the shame! ).

    Only Sam would have the patience to create such a lovely english paper quilt. Not only to cut out and hand piece all of those hexagons but the tiny triangles too!

    It's a shame you can't quite see your lovely quilting on your cushion, I will certainly remember that pattern for future use.

    Cant wait to hear what you have in store for your 2015 projects, have a lovely christmas x


  2. Delightful projects! The masculine cushion is very nice indeed. Have a wonderful Christmas :)
