and it's still not quite finished but here is my Mandy Shaw quilt that I have been working on lately:
it's not quite finished as I still have a few ends to sew in on the back and also I need to add quite a few buttons (for birdies eyes, apples on trees, door handles and such like) and also add some charms to the title piece and centre piece. I will have this as a work in progress though so it might still take me another two years to finish it completely!
Here are a couple of closeups:
This is the centre piece, it represents my family and the things I love - it still needs quite a few buttons and I have a load of lovely charms to add to it too. Still pondering on how to jazz up the mannequin - any ideas gratefully received!
I like to think that this is me and my friend Louise going off to the quilt show! (Malvern quilt show is only in a few weeks too - whoo hoo).
Sewing machine block - this just needs a button on the cupcake and it will be done.
I would also just like to say thank you everyone for all your good wishes, cards, flowers, emails and texts during this sad time for me - they have all helped immensely.
Thanks for looking - a bit chirpier and all sewn out from Solihull
