This week I finished this cushion, which is a commission for a friend. The brief was ' bright colours ' and I think this fits the bill.
Also this week my iron broke - a disaster for any quilter. It happened in the week my girls went back to school and my youngest daughter had a birthday, so there was not much spare cash going.
So I bought the cheapest iron I could find. £3.99 from Argos!!
What a fantastic buy !!! It is so light to handle and does the job perfectly.
I will get a bigger, better one eventually but I think I will continue to use this one for pressing my seams.
I've also been busy putting together a baby/toddler quilt and hope to get it quilted this weekend. Pictures in the next post.
Finally, I've entered my Bird of Paradise into the Quilting bloggers competition this week. Yes i know its the second week in a row, but it will be the last this year. It just so happened that it fitted into the theme of this weeks comp. I am not allowed to win any prizes because I came 3rd last week, so it's just a bit of fun.
If you would like to vote for my birdy then here is the link
Again , there are some beautiful quilts to vote for - there are so many talented, creative people out there.
Of course I would appreciate your vote.
Have a great weekend, whatever you are up to and to all my American friends - stay safe and out of the way of hurricane Irene.
Til next time
