Fairy Quilt.........








No card to show you today but I have taken a couple of pictures of the quilt I have made for one of my granddaughters...she loves fairies and mauves.  She sleeps in a bunk bed so this is not quite a single bed size.  I am now starting on another fairy quilt but this time it will be all pinks and it will be a for a single bed and then after that I have to make another quilt for my little grandson....
I must say I have enjoyed doing a bit of sewing as my hands no longer allow me to knit but the quilting is mostly done on the sewing machine.
Also I have another project on the go and hopefully will have a picture to post at the week-end...
Back to making cards today as its our monthly club meeting tomorrow so still have some sample cards to make..
Hopefully by the end of the week things will be back to normal in the craft room!


Thanks for popping by....

Oh Anne, this is wonderful, I really admire your sewing skills to come up with something as lovely as this. I came across a fab blog the other day by a quilter and it really got me interested. Wouldnt have a clue where to start but seeing how gorgeous this is is making me wonder if I should look into it. Your granddaughter will love this! CoB
