Ready to quilt

Just a quick post to show you what I'll be doing this weekend besides Ella's birthday party tomorrow, I've basted Sophie's quilt & am just about ready to quilt......really hoping to get this completed soon, its been on my to do pile for such an age

All pinned & stretched (enough I hope)..............................

Rolled for less bulk & all set for my machine :)...........oh JOY I'm so dying to finish a quilt this year, it really has been a bad sewing, crocheting, crafting one soooooooo far & now I' feel a new lease of life to finish all my unfinishes!!!!!!

Must be the sun which has decided to shine over Ireland for the first time in ...............I really can't remember, but oh it just makes everything glow with colour when it does

Hope it stays for the birthday bash
Will pop in with pics
Have a wonderful; weekend Karen xxxxxxx


  1. What gorgeous color on your quilt! And Happy Birthday to Ella! I had a favorite Auntie named Ella. And I have named my last batch of chickens after my Auntie, and her sisters!!! Ella, Emma, Hilda, Constance and Laural Lee.
    That sun shining over the verdant green is so, so lovely!!!

  2. Love the colors in your quilt. It will be a beauty. Yay for sunshine! Tell Ella your friend from Texas in the USA said happy birthday!

  3. Oh's gorgeous! Pinwheels are my favorite but personally not one I have tried yet. You have inspired me to try one very soon. I finished my first of four baby quilts this morning. Today I have to set out to find more fabric for the next one...a little boy!
    Hope your little one has a wonderful birthday!

  7. Happy birthday to Ella. Your quilts are always so lovely. A friend at work is going to be Ireland this summer for a month with her husband and 9 year old daughter. I can't wait to see photos when they return and hear about all that they do while there. Best wishes, Tammy
