Duet!

A nice quiet evening of binding yesterday, means that both the Sizzix quilts are now complete. 

In the five minutes between dashing round Tesco on the way home from work just in case, and heading out on the school run, I managed a rather unglamorous photoshoot...


I think they look pretty cool together, and they will hopefully win approval from the Sizzix-buying public en France...


I just need to put labels on the backs and then mail them off, then my January commitments will be mightily reduced.  Phew!

Both quilts measure 48"x 60"; they were pieced and quilted with Aurifil 50, using Klona White and Jade for backing, and crossweaves of unknown origin; all cut with Sizzix quilting dies.

Well we are bracing ourselves for snow, which will either be fantastic (for the kids, mostly) or a complete disappointment, but I have the #scrappytripalong to look forward to, so. bring. it. on!

  9. Wow, two finishes!! They will have fun in France, will they return to you bilingual? Enjoy your snow, we had about 3" last night but our heat wave continues with it going up to +4C soon, and the melt is on. Would make great snowpersons.

  12. Hi, i read your blog from time to time and i
    own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam remarks?

    If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can recommend?
    I get so much lately it's driving me crazy so any assistance is very much appreciated.
