Patch Work

I made patch work years ago and  have a very large unfinished quilt languishing in a wardrobe with "Guilt" written all over it. I don't think I could even source the original fabric anymore to finish it, that's my excuse anyway! Recently I was in Raystitch in Islington where I bought a lovely fabric with an architectural drawing print on it. I was happy to find that Pippablue, in Middle Street, Galway also has many tempting fabrics for patch work so I bought a few more there.

I decided I'd start small and machine sew a patchwork cushion

I plan to quilt it now, I had only ever used wadding but recently I saw Helen with batting but I can't find a local shop that stocks it so I will have to wait until I get to a big city to stock up. Meanwhile I have lots of fabric left to do some more if I can find some spare time.

  2. Ah! I remember that quilt - is it really not finished yet???
    I can date it too but do you want to know?

    1. that's the one, what a memory you have and my goodness do we go back that far?
      It can be titled "A lifetimes work" when I eventually finish it!
