Happy Wedding Quilt finish

I am so delighted with how this has eventually turned out:  I had quite a lot of "tweaking" to do but well worth the effort as those red squares all meet up neatly, and I made a "piano keys" border which also looks lovely, hope you can see enough from this photo:
This will now go over to "Butterfly" for long-arm quilting.
I also collected this little sampler from the framers and dropped off the finished Bird Sampler (SL Challenge):
I am off up to Nottingham next weekend to spend some time with my dear old mum - I will be seeing my sister so I can hand over the finished and framed Bird Sampler.  She can open an early birthday gift!
This weekend I hope to get out in the garden - the weather is so much better at last - and there is much which needs attention.  There is still very little blossom on our fruit trees but hopefully if this sunny weather continues it will start to appear.  I shall not start a new patchwork project until I have done some weeding - famous last words!  I am now giving my sewing studio a HUGE tidy, I am amazed at how messy I can be when being creative - not good!  I have however started a new cross-stitch piece:  I am sewing a Noah's Ark - again - and will Blog my progress next time.  My followers will know that I can never resist an Ark!!
I hope everyone has a wonderful May Day weekend!


  1. I love Noah's Arks! I look forward to seeing your new stitch. Your framed piece is wonderful! I'm sure the Bird Sampler will be beautiful in its frame as well. Love the wedding quilt! The piano keyboard border is smashing!
