My latest quilt is finished...
the Wensleydale pattern by Jen Kingwell.
I decided once I'd basted it that I'd hand quilt it.

I used Aurifil 28 in a bright red for the quilting in a
basically copying what Jen Kingwell had done on her
I also used a piece of bamboo batting that I'd picked up
on Facebook Marketplace for a bargain.
Originally this quilt I'd called "Carisbrook" after my new
But as I named my last finish "Carisbrook Cabin" I
decided to change it up a bit.
So "Marking Time" it is....
For two reasons- this quilt marks my time of moving
from the beach to the country.....
I started piecing it back in August in Brighton and
finished it here in Carisbrook.
The second reason is that I feel I have been marking
time - marching on the spot- with my quilting for the
last few months.
So maybe it's time to get more productive,
especially as the cooler Winter weather arrives.
There will be at least a couple of months of 'at home'
and sewing should take priority!
