More From Etsy

It will come as no surprise to you that I love Etsy. It's the one site that I can waste so much time and, if I had it, I would probably spend a lot of money there also. I am always looking out for quilt inspiration even though I manage about to create one quilt every two years! I found this great store called Carolina Patchworks . It's owned by Emily who lives in Raleigh North Carolina. I think I was first taken by how she photographs her quilts. I do love her choice of fabrics and colours and even the blocks she uses. Now if only I could afford one!

Quilt Project - Take Six and Seven

A little belated I know. Here's the tale end of my quilt project. It is now on it's way to be professionally quilted. This is the backing fabric drying on our line. There was 9.5 yards of it so it was quite unruly to handle.

My last step was to lay it all out on the bed to see if the backing was infact bigger than my top - a mistake I made in my last project. I'm happy to say it all fits so I look forward to getting back. It's sure going to change our bedroom.
