It's Time....

.. for a change..and put my sewing head on......I bought this...

 
and made this

 
from scraps

 
and free machined the whole quilt.. (it measures around 36x48 inches) it loooks nice and wrinkly but talk about hard work... it kept running away with me and I had to remember to breath! I think I need a little more practice.

 
I like the colours... it looks a little bit Zetti to me... which can only be a good thing.

What an incredible way to use up scraps, it certainly doesn't look like scraps:-)

Wow Effie - talent just flows naturally through your hands. Is there nothing you can't do.

Please say that you are rubbish at making cakes or cooking sumptuos meals, and don't do house work, or don't grow food or garden - it's not fair that someone should be given a trailer load of talent!

Do you have a special sewing machine that does the quilting effect?

It's truly beautiful - if only I could make something like that!

I'm in total awe of your quilting abilities Effie. Beautiful work and who'd of thought you create something as stunning as this with scraps!
