I’ve spent the last few days in bed nursing a kidney infection when I should have been doing lots of last minute sewing and prepping for Christmas. Well, if it’s not done now it probably won’t get done at all. Thankfully I finished a really important project before succumbing to the lurgy! My version of Lynne‘s Tube Quilt now lives on Jess’ bed 🙂
I can honestly say this quilt was a joy to make. At 80″ finished this is my biggest quilt make to date! It’s been somewhat tricky to photograph as there’s nowhere big enough (or dry enough outside) to hang it.
To my delight and amazement, Jess fell in love with it! I used the ever trusty Nummer from Ikea for the backing.
I even went to the trouble of pattern matching it! Not too shabby, even if I say so myself 😉
As you’d expect from Lynne, the pattern is slick and I’d thoroughly recommend it to anyone! Keep an eye on her blog in the New Year for the pattern release and quilt along 🙂
Before I go and rest again I’ve got to share something really exciting. It’s a finish, not by me but by Robin who got in touch to show her version of my Animal Crackers Tree skirt!!! I can’t tell you how giddy with excitement I was to see a pattern I designed being used by someone else.
There are a couple more pictures of it in our Flickr group. Thanks to Robin for sharing with me and allowing me to use her photo here. Now I’m off to rest again. Catch you soon x
