More cushions, bags and quilts

Once again a lovely weekend. Especially so on Saturday when we had a family get together at Punchbowl. The day was just lovely, with the expected rain holding off til late afternoon. I achieved a lot this weekend. New displays put up at the shop on Sunday morning. So much more can be done with the doors shut. I finished off the set of bags shown above. They used part of a honey bun (1 1/2" strips), I think I still have half left. I put the binding on two quilts and finished the embroidery on Rebecca's round robin. I also put this quilt top together. It uses a panel of A is for Annabelle and some 8" squares. Now I need to put borders on it. Trying to work out what sort of border, if any, to put on this little quilt, designed by McKenna Ryan, and then how to quilt it.

A cushion finished last week using Clare's owl pattern from her new quilt "Best Friends".

It's hanging in the shop. Couldn't get a proper photo of it, but here are some closeups.

And last, but not least, my dresden plate cushion, using a Lilac Hill candy bar.


  1. The owl quilt looks so lovely hung up on display and the alphabet one is very cute!!! I do like the cushions but I think the little bird one is my favourite!!!
