I had a shoe-box full of batiks and needed another quilt for my Pamper Day stall, so I found this pattern in a recent American Patchwork and Quilting magazine.  This was the alternate colourway.  It fits a single bed and may be big enough to be a topper for a double bed.  It didn't take long to make, about 3 weeks in all.

Caring Hearts

I put this top together from Caring Hearts received over the past few years.  On the Forum we send members a pack of  8 heart-blocks for occasions when members are feeling sad for whatever reason, or when they have something wonderful to celebrate.

Sampler Quilt 2010

Here is the sampler quilt completed during 2010.  The program was run by a co-ordinator in an online Forum.

At last

Drum Roll please.
At last it is finished.  So simple and it took 2 years of dithering about how to do it. Unfortunately it is a little short for a single bed when  the new owner grows up.  But for now it is big enough for a bed-topper and later he can use it as a throw.   There are tiny footballs sewn in the quilting and scattered over the quilt.
