A Finish for 2012

My first finish for the year was....A quilt for Mum to snuggle into when it is cooler...or to throw over the back of her couch...finished it in time to deliver it in person....
While I was in Sydney, Mum took me out to visit Patchwork on Pittwater, a patchwork shop at Mona Vale....just to have a look...while we were there Mum spotted some fabric for 'her next quilt'  (to be made by me since Mum is not a sewer or a quilter!!)  I didn't have a pattern so Robyn, the owner, set us down with a pile of her own books to look through to get some ideas for a pattern and how much fabric would be helpful she was..... quite some time later we came away with some of this fabric...

and some of this...


  1. Don't you just love it when people aren't afraid to request a quilt, AND help with the choosing.

  2. lovely choice of fabrics Lyn.xx

  3. A lovely quilt that you delivered... and fun to have some fabrics for the next one...

  4. Great first finish Lyn.
    How nice to go shopping with Mum and her going along fabric shopping when she does not even stitch. What a great Mum.

  5. Good to finish something early in the year. Love the colours in the top fabric and looking forward to seeing what you make with them.

  6. Your quilt is beautiful Lyn, lovely soft colours! The next one looks brighter!
