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...

'Pick Four' Blog Hop - Day 9!

I have been enjoying the Sue Abrey's Pick Four bloghop so much - I don't know what it is about seeing Sue's designs that the bloghopper's have made up so many different fabrics, but I find it fascinating! Today is no different - Trudi at Quilting Prolifically (not far up the road) has made the cover quilt in shades of mauve, and it looks fantastic!

Trudi is only safe from my kleptomaniac tendencies as she has not finished the quilting and binding, but I will be sure to keep my eye on it to see how it turns out.

Meanwhile, I have been quilting Stepping Stones, and here's a radical turn up for the books, I am THOROUGHLY enjoying myself with the FMQ! It is fab! It is fun! The results look great! Two sides down, two to go! Then today's pondering is how to quilt the cream corner squares.

But whilst I am busy pondering and being Mrs Smug, go to see Trudi's post - remember there is a signed copy of Pick Four up for grabs - and if you're quick, you'll be in time for the giveaways at Bejewelled Quilts, SewCalGal, Sew'n Wild Oaks and at Sweet P Quilting


  1. Very nice! You have every reason to be smug!

  2. I agree that Trudi's version of the cover quilt is gorgeous. Your FMQ looks great, and I'm glad you are enjoying doing it. Why do it otherwise?

  3. Dear Mrs Smug

    I think your quilting looks great. There is definitely a knack to meander quilting to keep it smooth and even and I looking at the pictures, you've mastered it. Sadly, I never did!
