  1. This is looking great-the colours go so well together. Glad that Fairy Girls quilt is coming along-can't wait to see it finished.What a lovely memory for her to know that she made her first quilt with her mum!

  7. Loved seeing how you put your disappearing nine patch together. Like you, I too stitched on the weekend trying to use a kit I had bought years ago of 6" flannel squares. Many times I had laid it out and pondered then shoved it back in the bag. I read on a blog about disappearing nine patch and decided to give it a go - it was so easy and enjoyable, until it came time to lay it out and work out how to put it together!! I tossed it all up in the air in disgust! Then surprisingly my very manly 11yo son placed it all out perfectly!!! I grabbed it up quick and stitched it and finished it all bar the label by 1am on Monday morning!! Next time I'm stuck with colour/placement I think I get my son to help again. Love the way you put yours together.

    Isn't fairy girl a clever girl.
    You will have to get another machine soon, if she is taking over.
