I’m rather fond of my New Zealand themed tablecloth. After making several similar quilt tops to take to quilting friends on our trip to UK in 2008, on our return I sat down and stitched myself one as well. The pattern is done “postcard style” bordered in strips of black fabric. This morning after I gave it a good press and laid it over the table I noticed that some of the black fabric strips had definitely faded much more than others. Looks like I used up all my black scraps, purchased at different times from different shops. On the table is with my still surviving Poinsettia plant, a Christmas gift and still going strong – I must be doing something right.

I’m still working away on UFO number 5, my Christmas Stars and Nine Patch quilt. Now I’ve finished quilting the stars, the next step in this project is to machine quilt the border, and attach the binding. With any luck I’ll get it finished tomorrow.
