Having been given a jelly roll and a quilting book for Christmas 2010, there is no excuse not to get on with quiltmaking.

Here's what happened next...

The Morning After!

My lovely new quilt is very warm indeed - something which will be of terrific benefit in the depths of winter, but with the current very warm spell has meant that I have totally overheated and slept very badly for the past couple of nights.

I've endured this rather than not use the quilt, though - I'm that delighted with it! Nice to see that Domino has given the quilt his seal of approval, too, along with a light dusting of cat hairs.

And onwards and upwards - to the next project!

Although my lips are most definitely sealed with regard to the design (all being revealed in due course, people), here's the fabric that I plan to use.

The more observant will notice that I've had a rush of blood to the head and am using a fabric which has a slight pattern to it. I know how to walk on the wild side!


  1. Is that a Christmas project? Love being in the "possibilities" zone.

  2. Nope, Joanna, not Christmas - the fabric (poor photo, I know) is gold (pattern), cream, green & terracotta/brick.

    I live being in the 'possibilities' zone too - although I can't say more about the design other than I am excited and flattered to be involved!

  3. Can't wait to see what you're up to with these beautiful projects.

  4. Nice selection. Actually, the green counts as patterned as well (but 'reads' as solid ... )

    Very glad you have slept under your quilt, I never think they are completely finished until they have been snoozed under.

  5. Is that a clue to the design poking out from behind the fabrics??? I'm looking forward to seeing what you choose.

    In this hotter weather I often sleep under a sheet and a quilt and ditch the duvet, it's definitely too hot for both right now :o).

  6. We do the same thing SewAli, works well.

  7. I think you will be interested to see how this one turns out, Sue! ;)

    By the time the patterned beige is chopped up, it hardly holds a pattern, Bilbo, turns out sort of 'mottled', but a step towards prints, nonetheless - and I'm pretty relaxed about that. :)

    I'm surprised just how warm the quilt is, Ali - I'm guessing that the equivalant 'tog rating' is something else to consider with wadding selection...

    *thinks - what tog are two snoring cats?
