I’m pleased that I can show not one finish but two this week. First, was the horse panel quilt which I’ve been working on. This is what it looked like last time you saw it.
I decided to add another border, to bring the quilt top up to single (twin) bed size. This will eventually be a donation quilt for an older child. I rushed out between the showery rain to take some photos. The next stage will be to layer it and pin it, ready for some of my simple machine quilting.

At the same time, I was adding borders to a little boy baby quilt. I had previously stitched the centre panel together as leader and ender sewing. I used the same green fabric in both quilts, but different creams.

In my stash I had found a fat quarter of both the digger fabric and stones. I’m sure I didn’t buy these fabrics, so maybe I won them in a raffle at the quilt club? So to use them up I decided to make a baby quilt for a boy. Little boys like diggers and big machines, don’t they?

So that’s been my week, sitting at the sewing machine. Plus I’m feeling virtuous, I also did a little mending.
This weekend is going to be cold and wet, a good weekend to stay home and do some stitching. Perhaps I’ll be able to finish hand stitching the binding on my grand-daughter’s horse quilt. It will be great to get that finished.
