Marching...

Well pinch-punch first of the month again! Time to do the Fresh Sewing Day linky-thing...
Lily's Quilts

I thought I'd had a bad month, but it doesn't look too shoddy, although, it has to be said, a lot were only March reveals; I did finish two quilts though.

Firstly my Brit Bee II, Diamond Nips, which I am head over heals in love with...


I took it to my parent's yesterday and was able to get a few shots (in the snow!), this one is my absolute favourite...


My second quilt was my Modern Meadow Orbit.  Made in conjunction with Lindsey's QAL, I got this finished on schedule, which after playing catch-up, I am rather surprised and pleased about...


Seeing as it also got the fancy photo treatment, I will give it a post of its own tomorrow. 

So into April, and I need to get my first quarter FAL post all sorted too, and start thinking about what to put on Q2.  Can't believe we are a quarter of the way through the year already!

It's shaping up to be a typical bank holiday here, cold, miserable and I am suffering from a nasty throat, earache and headache type thing, which goes oh so well with the kids' loud voices, murderous intentions and sugar overload. 

Time to go hide somewhere quiet under a quilt xxx

  1. I think javediqbal (above) must want to have his throat ripped out by you. Is there a way of having spam that gets through reported and blocks by Google?!!!

    Meanwhile, I hope you start feeling better soon and I love, love, love your official photo shoot photos of the quilts!
