nearly all done

Holidays are over sadly but it's been a great week for labels and binding with some finishes to tick off the list.

Basket case is a big finish, label sewn on too...

The back is my attempt at a Liberty quilt but I wasn't quite happy with it so it made a perfect backing.

Tilda's Hometown  (adjusted) is done and will be gifted to a work friend.
This was quilted by a novice quilter friend. The larger quilting design has made it very soft, just like a handquilted quilt.

Don't these labels look pretty on their quilts?

Things will slow down, productivity wise but rest assured there will be crafting being done. 

Have a great day



  1. The basket quilt is gorgeous, love it. Nice labels.

  2. Basket Case - stunning! I am without words!
    I also love the flowers in the pots - such a neat quilt!

  3. Lovely finishes Marina and the labels are just gorgeous. xx

    1. thankyou Lin x, it seems I can't reply to your email.... are you having issues?

  4. Beautiful quilts Marina, the labels are lovely. Sue.

  5. Lovely, lovely finishes. Your work is beautiful.
    And gorgeous backings, too.
    There is so much work in the basket quilt, but so worth it.
    I really like the effect created by the quilting in Hometown. More stunning stitching.
    Damn those holidays finishing. Very inconvenient.

  6. two more fabulous quilts done, I do love a pieced backing .....

  7. Beautiful finishes - good on you labelling so well! Great idea to use your 'not so loved' quilt as a backing!

  8. couple of great finishes there Marina.....well done..........


Saturday with friends

I had a lovely catch up yesterday at Patch and Quilt in Gisborne with sewing friends. Most of us go back to when there  used to be quarterly...
