quilts of shame.

I cant show my current quilt as its going into a competition, however I thought I would show you one of my quilts of shame... it started life as 18 tiny little intended pincushions ,meant as christmas presents for all the staff at school ,all lovingly pieced and stitched over those long winter months, every one is different. Wasn't that kind and nice of me .......however as I stitched them I got fond of them, they became my babies and sadly for the school I couldn't part with them. OH NO PLEASE DON'T TAKE MY BABIES.. nine days before the end of term I had to frantically make eighteen small covered books to give away, and the babies sat in a box for a while. then I had a good idea--- extend the blocks with strips of cream and natural silk strips and do even more stitching and quilting .... good idea! Last week I found them in their box and pinned them up to get to know them again, they are all wadded , backed, and quilted ,I just have to join them ,they are actually old enough to go to school by themselves now , how shamefull is that?


  1. Oh, I'm sure we can all find a quilt of shame! I have one or two I'm sure! Maybe some babies that will now be ready for secondary school! LOL It's a beautiful quilt, that's for sure :)

  2. I must have missed this one! These are beauties and will be a wonderful quilt when you get it made up. No wonder you couldn't bear to part with them.


I get very excited when I get a comment. So do please send me a comment, thankyou.
