A quilt finish.....


I had a happy weekend quilting and sewing....

I did this all over wood grain type design on the Tim Holst Fat Quarter Quilt I made....  I love the texture and feel when it's all quilted....



It doesn't show too much on the front which I wanted as the fabrics don't need any more added to them....

... then a couple of evenings hand sewing down the binding and the quilt is done....


... sitting waiting patiently on the chair to be posted to it's new home....
(actually it looks quite good there .... maybe it should stay!!!)


then I added some pieces to my pineapple blocks.... I have another row of reds to do and then the corners and these will be done.....


A stitching day with friends this week got some hand embroidery done....

This one was almost done and just needed a few more french knots to finish it off.... 


... and this one was completed too...



I hope you are having a lovely week.... we have Stitchers Dream Day Out hosted by The Quilters Angel this weekend.  Luckily still able to go ahead and lots of Covid 19 plans put in place to have a lovely and safe event.... I'm so looking forward to it... 

Righto, Gotto Go.... job job to do... lucky I love quilting!!

What a lovely finish! The colors are soft and soothing, yet masculine with those fun Tim H prints. I love the wood grain quilting. The texture is amazing! :)

Your finished quilt looks wonderful. I like it when the fabrics do all the work and the quilting takes a back seat. Lovely work.
And that pile of pineapple blocks has grown!
Every one of these embroideries is a delight. Love the poppies.
