A Hatrick...

 of finishes!

First my jumper....

called "Twisted"

Although after wearing it a couple of times I think the 

sleeves need to be longer.

So I'll be doing that soon!

Second, my Sugar Gum Blossoms wall quilt...

Close-up detail of stitching

Perhaps it needed a post of its own but with the few 

comments I get, I don't see much point.

After all, this is a record of my work for future 


I chose to bind it with a facing....

following the tutorial shown on the APQS website on YouTube

There are hanging triangles on the two top corners.

Hopefully it will be hanging on the wall soon.

A quilt without its own post....

 my Solstice Star quilt....

I'm not in love with this one....

a sneak peek of the back...

I quilted with my Westalee rulers and 

templates this time!

Nice to know I can still do it!

Quilt #4 for 2023
Lifetime quilt 150

It is also nice to have only one WIP,

as I head off on a little overseas jaunt....!


See you soon,
