WOYWW 199 – quilting again


I know I said I was going to be making bags for the already completed quilts but in the end I was just itching to get back to the one I showed a glimpse of a week or so ago, using the made-fabric idea.


I’m just at the stage where I am joining the blocks for the quilt-as-you-go method and am quite liking how it is turning out.Ā  It’s not huge, but I think it’ll make a nice play-mat size item when it’s done.

Happy WOYWW!

  1. Looking good. Quilting is where my crafting began me down the road to paper crafting.

  2. Good morning, Mary Anne. Your quilt looks lovely – well done! It’s funny how so many of us are getting sidetracked into fabric at the moment. Happy Wednesday. :o)

  22. Gorgeous colours and such a fab quilt! Take care my WOYWW friend. Zo xx 117

  23. One quilt in hand to be posted and a couple in the mail!!
    I’ve got a few posts in the files from my dem day, hence the bunting. I am revving up to get stitching again and I get more inspired when I see what you are making but I have family coming tomorrow then the Art Specially show so I won’t be stitching until I get home from Holland around 10th April. The fabric is feeling lonely and I’m missing it!

  24. You always have such different and fab quilt patterns. I LOVE these random squares you’ve been doing…they just make me smile! And they go really well with the funky stripey fabric. And I scrolled down and saw that quick quilt tutorial…how clever is that?? It seems like such a cheat to do it that way…and I’m all for that, lol! I’m Team Captain for Shortcuts Anonymous šŸ˜‰
    Hugs, LLJ 59 xxxx

  28. Your quilts are always beautiful really like the colours you have used in this one,absolutely love your Gelli book, it seems a Gelli Plate is a must have in the crafting world at the mo, think I might have to do a bit of You Tubeing to find out more.
