All Puffed out!

Well, I have now completed the top of my Puff quilt - Yay!

After I chat with you I am going to baste the three layers of the fabric sandwich together and get stuck into some quilting :-) I am told that practice makes perfect, and every aspiring quilter has to start somewhere... and for me, this is it!

I have also been busy sewing on some other projects, but I can't show you them yet as they are for swaps. What a tease, eh?

But what I can share with you are these soft & cozy woollens and tweeds that I purchased yesterday from my local patchwork store. I am gradually gathering woolly scraps so that I have enough variety to make one of these.

Jodie over at Ric-Rac did a post about Mimi at Doll a few weeks back, and I checked out the link and spent a happy few hours ooh-ing and aah-ing over these cute Tiny Worlds!

I hope that you are all enjoying a great weekend!

Hugs! Vikki x

Hi Vikki,
Puff the dragon quilt has come together very nicely.
Have fun basting and quilting your quilt together.

Like everyone else, I also like the woollen pin cushion. The fabrics you've chosen will look great.

Hey Vikki! Puff's looking pretty darn handsome! What a wonderful job you've done and I'm sure you'll tackle the quilting with equal skill. I think this will definitely gain you 'Favourite Aunty' status! :0) Bear hugs! KRIS

Gorgeous stack of wools. I bought one almost identical to the top one in your stack. What a fantastic dragon.
