A couple of weeks ago I answered and advert from a gentleman selling patchwork fabric that had belonged to his wife. When I actually got to see it , it was lots of cotton lawn blouses that she had made, they had got rather worn and faded, so she had put them aside to piece at some point. I chopped them all up with Burnice's help and discovered many beautiful prints.

Don't know about you but I am REALLY bad about labelling the quilts I have made. I have never, ever labelled one. Not a single one. I have thought about it; I have even looked for a simple label solution but somehow it has just not happened! So today Eliza was bored. "Why don't you see if you can work out how to use the memory on my sewing machine and make me some quilt labels" say I. "Ok" says she. So of course once she has made them I have to sew them on.

Another thing I bought at Sandown was the fabric needed to back and therefore finish, two unfinished quilts. Now I have cheated a bit and started my Dear Jane quilt but I was a good girl and dug out a disappearing 9 patch quilt that I made a while ago at a class. Once I got going it was very quick to do and I am quite pleased with the red and grey together! Grey is not a colour I would normally use but it was just right for this!

I am ashamed to admit that I am an addict. My name is Natasha and I am addicted to my newest project.....a Dear Jane quilt! For those of you who don't have a clue what I am on about take a look here This lady sewed her quilt over 5 years and her quilt design has been converted into a book form so we can make our own "Jane " quilt. So I have begun.....hand sewing it all.
