The end is in sight. I have worked hard the last two days and only need 5 more blocks.

This quilt is for my dad. I am more a fan of bright colour, so this has been hard work for me. I am really pleased though that it's only 5 blocks to go.

Husband and mother like it too but I will have to do serious colour before I do monochrome again.

In other news three baby quilts I made are part of an exhibition. Look that's them there.
Photo "borrowed" Lady Sew and Sew Henley.

OK, so it's an exhibition of customers' work but they are up on the wall in the tea room. My husband refers to the tea room as the sanctuary, a place for husband with fabric fatigue. If you are in glorious Oxfordshire why not come along to Lady Sew and Sew's warehouse. Lovely quilts and fabric and somewhere to leave the long suffering other half. What more can you ask for? 

I am linking to Freshly Pieced WIP Wednesday.


  1. I like the monochrome but I agree that it would get hard to do after a while.

  2. Bright color is awesome, but this is absolutely gorgeous in an understated way. Perfect color scheme for this time of year, too!

  3. So pretty. Your dad will love it, you have done such a great job on it.

  4. what a great use of value in how you've arranged the fabrics in your monochrome quilt! Really effective.

  5. Oh my goodness - I love the quilt for your Dad. It's beautiful!

  6. The quilt for your Dad is beautiful!
