I made this patchwork top in my old craft room 
It was packed away when I emptied the room
And then moved into the new one 

But I had kinda forgotten about it 
Until I spied it the other day 

I even have the binding cut up and ironed for it 
So today I pinned it all together so that it can be quilted 

It was good to be able to get it moving along and closer to finished 
I had forgotten how long it takes to pin it all in place 

Here it is all done and now ready to be take to the machine and quilted 
When the mood strikes me lol 

It’s a single bed size so I’m going to have to pick a day where I’m feeling energetic 
Once I quilt it and sew the binding on 
I’ll be able to sit in front of the television and hand sew the binding to the back 

It will still be a few weeks yet before it’s finished 
But that’s ok. It’s all about the journey not the destination 
I’ll post pics when it’s all done 

It’s kinda nice this project has spanned the two craft rooms 
Hope your all well and happy 

See ya xx


  1. I used to sew binding that wayr43ee (Tigger typing there). These days i cheat and machine it first to the back and top stitch it on the front. I made a tea cosy yesterday and bound it the neater (your) way and realized there is a lazy pleasure in hand stitching (when i have good light - the eyes ain't what they used to be). Your quilt top looks lovely. Can't wait to see the quilting.

    1. I machine to front and hand stitch to back
      It is kinda relaxing hand stitching. I do agree the eyes are not what they once were.
