Happy finishes!

 I have two finishes to share with you today!

Firstly, the Whittaker pinafore I made for my sister, 

Helen was gifted to her yesterday!

We had a lovely time together getting some photos!

The denim was heavier than I was expecting when I 

ordered it online and I was worried about how I would 

manage it!

However, my Juki powered through every multi-layer.

(I may need to make a pair of jeans now!)

The green topstitching is just perfect, isn't it?

Secondly is my "Halo" quilt, which I am calling

 "Double Donuts".

My Melbourne friends will know this refers to an 

impressive COVID figure.....

Today is the 16th day we Victorians have achieved zero 

new cases, zero deaths! 

And today, we have NO cases of COVID at all in our 

wonderful State!

 All that lockdown pain deserves a celebration quilt, 

don't you think?!

I hand quilted this over the course of about 6 weeks, 

powering through not one but more than two spools of 

thread- a Superior Threads reel of 12wt in Cerulean,

A WonderFil Eleganza reel of 8wt in a variegated aqua, 


some of the other Superior Threads in Pansy.

We were lucky to find not one, but two bridges 

to throw it over. 

Neither of us was tall enough to hold it up without it 

trailing on the ground!

And a tree branch came in handy too!

The backing was bought before our first lockdown back 

in March, 

When Darn Cheap had all patchwork fabric for $5 a 


It really suits Helen's lounge room,

but, no, it came home with me!

Quilt #8 for 2020

Lifetime quilt #126

Finished size: 84" by 74"

My version of the "Halo" quilt

Happy sewing!
