Week of almost finishes.

 It's been a week of almost finishes here. I have a little zig zag quilt top finished but not quilted.
 Easter placemats quilted and binding sewn on but not sewn down.

And a skirt for my youngest. It just needs to waistband sorting to. The pattern is by McCalls. The skirt is a full circle and "super swishy" and if you are under 10 the swish factor is very important. The ruffle on the underskirt is because my daughter very much has the idea that more is in more. I am not sure I am in a hurry to repeat the ruffle on a full skirt like this this though. In total of six metres of ruffle. I did suspect at one stage it would never end. My daughter loves it and that is what matters.

I must write about my trip to the Stitch show in London with my friend Anna. I will do this after I have sorted thorough the pictures. Have a happy weekend.


  1. LOVE the zig zag quilt top! Where did you find the design?

    1. Hi Nina,
      I used this design from the sizzix blog
      I have an accuquilt and a 4.5inch finished HST cutter, so everything is a bit smaller.

  2. Of course more is more, when you are little. lol I like the ruffle too - although I know what you mean by when you say you thought it would never end. I really like the zig-zag quilt. It's so popular right now, and for good reason.

  3. Lots of fun projects going on! Better get those easter placemats done soon;)

  4. Ahhhh.... Hope your daughter enjoys her super swishy skirt. That ruffle will be worth the effort! I can envision her twisting and swishing now!
