The household has recovered from the excesses of panto (partly the hectic crowds but mainly the after-show party!) and I've been furiously sewing to try and get the curves quilt finished for DD to take back to uni in Brighton this weekend. It's partly quilted, and I think I might be in with a chance.
I decided to enhance the shapes by just quilting about a quarter of an inch away from all the seams. So far, it's looking really good. I can't decide whether to stipple quilt the border or just quilt straight lines to frame it. I think DD will have to decide that.

(Here's a close up of the quilting. The wierd lime green lines are tacking thread!)

I was quite excited the other day to receive a squishy! It was from Loulee on the Isle of Man. She had promised to send me some orphan blocks which she wanted to donate to Projetc Linus. There were some lovely applique ones of birds and butterflies,

and some pretty log cabin and other blocks.
Thankyou very much Loulee, and watch out on my Linus blog for them appearing in a quilt!
