Been busy

A couple of weeks ago Lynda and I had great fun at Rocheberie at a sit and sew day, a great time to chat and sew, what could be better.
This table topper is part of my gift for secret Santa on an online group I belong to. I quilted holly and berries in the border in red thread but it hasn't shown up in this picture.

This is also a gift for someone for Christmas but I am not going to spoil anything if I don't reveal who it is for." I just want it lightly quilted" were my instructions Eek! I took longer thinking about this quilt than actually quilting it. Eventually I just quilted arcs through the diamonds to make circles through the quilt.

 My lady liked the leaves in the border.

A simple panto through these hexagons.

And this quilt I don't think I have posted about before but was done ages ago and is still waiting to be collected, raw edge applique, lovely fabric colours and design, hours of outline quilting and McTavishing.
My next project is a quilt for a Christmas gift I had an idea in mind but I have been chosen as a pattern tester for Lynne at Lilly quilts so I will be changing my plans. I will have to read her instructions thoroughly instead of my usual look at the picture and do my own thing. Watch this space.
