Another One Ready to be Quilted

I put a plain snow border on my whirly gig quilt using the tutorial over at Hyacinth Quilt Designs. This is a great blog with gorgeous quilts and helpful hints. Cindy has written a few books too which are full of beautiful quilts.
I actually quilted another table runner I made last year but the photo was crap so I will blog about that next time.

Spring came and then left

We had some beautiful spring weather this week and then it got cold and wet again!!! I decided to try and finish some UFOs but instead started some new projects. However I did finish one.
 I love table runner It is the ziggy zaggy mini quilt from a tutorial by Kaye at Miss-Print. It was very quick and easy (which is why I actually managed to finish it).It uses charm squares with background fabric so is a great thing for scraps. I can see me making more of these.

I used some aboriginal fabric and black for the back.

I also started a whirly gig quilt. I used another tutorial. This one is here at Quilting on Turtle Hill.

Between Charming Friends

I finally finished my quilt from the between charming friends quilt along last year! I used a Tula Pink charm pack and love how it turned out although it is a little too pink for me so I am not sure what I will do with it. Of course because it took me so long to finish I could not get any fabric from the same range for the binding. I ended up using some green from Tula Pinks latest range Prince Charming which looks good. The quilt is quite small. It measures just under 30 x 36 inches.

I am quite happy with the quilting which I kept very simple and easy.
