Quilting!

Now don’t faint!  Actually a Quilting post on a Quilting Blog!  I know amazing for me!  I should have finished these two before Christmas but having a bad cold which turned into a chest infection put me three weeks behind with Christmas preparation, including finishing these two small quilts.  The larger one was for DH and the smaller one for Youngest.  Eldest has a King size bed quilt which I am still trying to finish to come and no that did not get done either!!! 

It was also a cheat as well really as they were panels and all I had to do was sandwich them, quilt them and then sew the binding on, so not a lot of actual putting together really! 

DH and The Boys love pickup trucks and DH has a black one which he uses for work so when I saw this panel I just had to get it. 

I just love the colours on it.  Screams Christmas to me. 

Youngest’s was again a panel which you are supposed to create an Advent calendar from but he did not want me to cut it up (!) so I again just sandwiched it, quilted it and here it is.  Again the colours are wonderful and reminds me of our trips to London.  The numbers on the bottom which as I say you are supposed to sew around the sides I have decided to put this on our breakfast bar and put something on the relevant numbers for each of the Boys this coming Christmas!!! 

Although the panels are a bit of a cheat it is great for something to go together really quickly and have the end result done quickly too!  As you all know when you are creating a quilt, especially the King Size bed quilt for Eldest it does take rather longer!!! 

I hope you are all having a great Wednesday.   Treacle has parked herself under the radiator in our dining room, which is on, and does not want to move although she will be in a little while when she has to go out!!!! 

Hugs & Love, Susie & Treacle xx
