May Brought Sunshine

I hope your weather is as nice as ours.  It has been a glorious week with both heat and sunshine and it's meant to continue until at least next Wednesday. Whoop Whoop!!

We're forging ahead with our quilts and there's a lot to show you.

I like to show you a photograph of each quilt in its various stages and then again at handover; hence any duplications in what you're seeing from month to month.  We're proud to show them off...

The Canvas Block quilt is finished and is a riot of colour.

That's a wee glimpse of Ros's pretty garden with half a quilt, on a sunny day.  We think it's going to its new owner this week but I promise to show you the whole quilt...

Thanks for all your Pinwheel Blocks.  We love how the finished quilt looks and it's definitely a block I'll be using myself in the not too distant future.  Stunning!!!

This quilt came together so quickly and has become Ros/Karen's speciality.  It makes short work of a Jelly Roll and there's another one on the go which we'll show you next month.

I love this little kiddy Hexi Quilt. Photographs don't do it justice.

We had received these centre blocks as part of a donation and pondered...inspiration came last week!  A Medallion...ish Quilt.  From time to time we make a quilt top which is just the right size for a wheelchair user's lap.  This is just the biz!!!

Some left over Layer Cake squares were quartered and joined a Charm Pack to make this quilt centre which will have pretty borders attached next month.

Poor Lisa was so frustrated that she didn't complete this quilt top on Saturday.  It's waiting for you on June 10th Lisa...

Another dinosaur in the works...

...and a boy's quilt in the making...

...finished by the girls and getting a good press.

And last but not least we gifted this quilt to a beautiful lady and pray for her speedy recovery.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed to these quilts in any way, whether by making blocks, donating fabric, joining us monthly for some sewing and craic, or in any other way which escapes me...we couldn't do it without you.  

Last month's blocks are still coming in and we'll let you see them soon.  I hope to post this month's block in this next couple of days.

Happy Sewing


  1. you ladies have been busy completing all these quilts good job beautifully done

  2. my last month's blocks are nearly done, well in my head anyway. My favourite photo is the glimpse of Ros' garden, but my favourite quilts are the hexie one and the boys quilt with the aquas and reds
