All Sewn Up.


How is your Friday going? It is a beautiful Spring day here. I like this kind of weather because we haven't needed the wood fire to keep us warm for a while now. I have finished my tablecloth. When I finished it I debated about how I was going to quilt it. I have decided to get if done by a machine quilter and will probably be dropping if of next week. I was thinking of getting a edge to edge pattern of something from nature eg;butterfly. I will be meeting with the quilter and discussing this with her. With the tablecloth I didn't have to buy anything,just using up bits and pieces I had in my stash. Of course I was able to use some of the bluc ric-rac I bought a couple of weeks ago.I also have another queen size bed quilt I want done. It will be good to get that one completed instead of sitting on the bench in the the sewing room.
Now I am completly surprised at how good Australia Post has been lately. Yesterday I received this pattern and georgous material from Vickie. I was lucky to be a reciepant of Vickie's Random Act of Kindness Monthly giveaways. Thanks heaps Vickie. Last week I was pleased to receive a giveaway win from Cath. You can see one of the siggy tags in my sidebar to the right. Thanks Cath.
Now as tonight is Friday-Night-Sew-In I had better go and get organised for that. I plan to make something for Bonnie's new kitchen. It is not to late to join in,just click on the link and it will take you to Heidi's blog. As I type this there are 105 people joining in and there is room for you.
Happy Sewing.

Oh Bev! Your tablecloth looks gorgeous. I hope you'll show us when it's quilted. I've just been to the big blue and red shop this morning buying fabric for tonight FNSI. I'm all set.

It turns out great Bev. I really like it. Machine quilting will be good for a tablecloth. I love the lady bugs border - Hugs Nat

Where is this Spring weather, not in Geelong and certainly not in Hobart, can I come and live with you ???smile smile. Well your tablecloth will bring out the sunshine

Your table cloth turned out so fun! I love how you connected the lady bugs with the ric-rac. Can't wait to see how it looks all quilted. Have fun with your Friday night sew-in!

What a beautiful finish! I look forward to how you decide to quilt it.
We are heading for fall. Cold. I had to turn on the heater for the first time today. Brrrrrrr

Hi Bev,
I'm speechless. That is one adorable quilt (table cloth) and you did an amazing job on the design. I think for my next larger quilt, that is when I get to it, that I'm going to have a person do some long -arm quilting. I'm not good at quilting and have difficult maneuvering larger quilts. They do some amazing stuff and I can't wait to see what quilt design you will do. Have a great time at you Friday sew-in. Have a wonderful weekend.
